A line from Jimmy Carter

Contemporary Manhattan is a
beautiful mosaic. But overlay
a database of all ground-
mounted solar projects upon it

& detailed schemata of the re-
mains of exotic animals & the
water systems entombed beneath
emerge. The body begins to use

its stored sugar & any scaffold
that is not standard. There are
arcane rules revived, which is how
they took our planet from us. Now

Karl Marx traces the historical pro-
cesses of modern expropriation in
a new series that is due to premiere
on HBO. I need to call Mother.
