Return to your money / double it / arrange the bills into a smile /
a leader sits pale / his face twists inside someone else’s pocket /
not mine / i am broke / friend give me your ear / i will fog the
shape of wealth with my breathing / between money and dirt
is a burning body / hands coming to warm themselves / do you
hate money / is your anger expensive / aim the fluorescent light
just right / the cash will flow from all our holes
