You think everybody has money?
               Nobody has money.
               Money is a passive verb: waiting-to-be-spent.
               Not-spending, on the other hand, is to be void, lost in such a way that to-be-found-again is possible only through redemption: a sacrifice of paper bills, the sacrament of coins.
               Everybody knows money mottles.
               Also: it fails to.
               Let’s say I don’t want that mark of difference.
               Against a mottled background, I want mottle.
