Retrodictions, canto 3, quatrain 3

In one direction, deeds conspire;
forever lost is last year’s rose;
the frost will never warm the fire;
for tiny chaos always grows.

Commentary by Brother Quark:
A meditation on transience, culminating in strange metaphysics.

Commentary by N. Hellerstein:
This is about the second law of thermodynamics; the increase of entropy.
