Money carves a blurry path, muscling through rivers of unknowns -
Illuminate that. Bury this. Ignore those. Amplify what..
with all its coldness,
performs chores without breathing.
Disingenuous, hmmm, but accepted as currency.
That river's current pokes slippery hands into the invisible air,
offering free money, selling freedom.
The current has deliberate, diabolical intent.
But another currency exists. An emotional one.
Debilitating and exhilarating when allowed to flow -
emotional currency. Spend it. Save it. Let it move everything.
