these millstone visions
as the absurdity of the existence
of a divided mind
for some reason in half
for peace and for war
these bouts of pity
these machinations of disgust
the comprehension of farsightedness
the categorical rejection
of this justified clarity
this lonely anger
before the atonement of sin
is the contemplation of the source of evil
this collapse of the contradictions of reality
this pernicious charm of earthly greatness
is this defenseless mastered prepaid war
if you are not afraid of anyone
and you do not scare anyone
then you are not interested in anyone –
without stupid money
