alphabet for derek beaulieu



Capitalism is an alphabet where the vowels think they are allowed to be consonants.

When we say, “Communism” our dog sits.

The great poetry bail-out of 2008 hasn’t happened yet. The great meaning exchanges are not yet in crisis. They’ve always been in crisis.

When we say “Capitalism,” our dog shakes a paw.

Capitalism is an alphabet knotted with diphthongs and invisible ligatures.

I can sit, shake a paw, and play dead but only if you pay me.

Crisis is an oasis.

There are four ‘letters’ in DNA & 26 letters in the English alphabet. There are one hundred dollars in a hundred dollars.

If I replaced my DNA with the alphabet, you’d hear the pennies fall.
