On the wane

american dollar

by Jim Sharp

but in the meantime
the earth trembles beneath
the foundations stones
tearing at the charter laid down
by the empires founding fathers

spectral ancestors & decadent descendants
screech & howl & squeal like terrified
stuck pigs at slaughter as the bare bones
edifice along with all their dreams of a
worldwide imperium disintegrate painfully
