His Fractals

Michael Gushue

Conrad’s edges are rough around
the edges. He feels fragmented,

but Conrad is no monad. Each part
of Conrad is Conrad. Conrad
is Conradial, Conradgruent.

But also irregular.
Traditional language
has a hard time saying
what shape Conrad is.

Natural objects that approximate
Conrad include clouds, sea
foam, leaves, snow flakes.
