MONEY

 

                                      In money, the distinction between

                                      Coins and notes is akin

                                      To particles and wavicles in the atom.

                                      An atomic society will always

                                      Uphold such a distinction,

                                      Even if, in its bureaucratic decadence,

                                      It produces more coins than notes.

                                      For coins correspond, in their concrete realism, to

                                      The particle aspect of the atom, whereas

                                      Notes correspond, in their abstract naturalism,

                                      To its wavicle aspect.

                                      The former are phenomenal, the latter noumenal;

                                      Although the latter in some sense precede the former

                                      In regard to their autocratic essence.
