Wallet.

Case, luggage,
an empty promise on the lips of notes
singing the melody of rapist gods.

Wallet.

Give me free, shackle me, shackle me
wholesale, Sam’s Club, Walton’s versus forty-seven percent:
the moral imperative is hunger.

Wallet.

State: gaseous, solid,
liquidated principles.

Wallet.

Broken windows. Broken people.
The bank is no longer the bank
and New Orleans is Atlantis in disguise.
A flood or something. Dust.
