The room surrounded him:
Objects of desire
Obtained by firing his imagination
And hiring I its stead
A head of numbers and receipts.

We are taught to funnel our selves into a pre-scribed future, written by wannabe doctors of Eco nomics, specializing in echoes, the sounds of struggling centuries bouncing from cave to grave, from tribe to culture to country to empire to dust.
