1985: Money Poems I & Ii - Poem by Cretan Maineiac


This is my last bill.

Last time I have to


About being asked for money.

Spent, I think I’ll go try to remember what

I did before I knew what

An allowance was.


In your exchange we’re

All equal, survivors that-

Even with nothing- must

Be accounted for. It’s a


Freedom’s bloodiest gift.
