The Economy (8.1.11)

in retrospect
money grows on trees
and the word is made meat
in the language of arsonists
the water tongued snake is evaluator

money or nothing
the earth is a simplex of debt
running off borrowed sunlight

we excrete dinosaurs and animals
through our tailpipes
and one day our fathers as well

we will dig through our ancestors
to find their oil

george washington returns
as a noxious vapor in a child's lungs
as the oil-jesus passes into the sunset
passed in the gas of the great machine
as the revolution races
toward the starting line

these are primal screams
lusting for primordial liberty
the liberty to revoke liberty
and turn it all to debt
