How you like her house, her porch,
Her climbing roses.

That skull fucks Americans
With their own money

this leads me to wonder. it’s a rather impressive sum. a billion dollars. is this a lure to get people to think that they too can be mr. buffett if they just sink enough money into the maw of the market? is it irony, to point out that the american fantasy would more likely involve greenbacks instead of sex? is it a typo? we meant to give him/her only the high six figures, oops. our bad.

what could it be???

Practice any art, music, singing, dancing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpting, poetry, fiction, essays, reportage, no matter how well or how badly, not to get money and fame, but to experience becoming, to find out what’s inside you, to make your soul grow.
