Extracting Value, Creating Wastelands

Extracting Value, Creating Wastelands

There’s hardly any value
In that which is burnt
Sacrificed to the great vacuum,
To appease it, by its servant
The nomeus, the pastor
Each head a walking strip
Of earth, a plot
To seize and squeeze
All value from,
Extracting this —
Valere, to be well — and so
Just leaves it sick, stripped
Abandoned as waste
Advancing the state
Of the Nomos
