"I started hitching up the thing."

The DoJ however said in a statement 
published late on Thursday
after a careful review of the information 
if you drop a rose in the Hudson

provided in the [Senate] report and more than a 
river at its mysterious mouth up
year of thorough investigation [DoJ officials] have determined that
near Saratoga think of all the places

based on the law and evidence as they exist at this time there is not
it journeys by as it goes out to sea 
a viable basis to bring criminal prosecution with respect to Goldman 
forever… think of that

Sachs or its employees in regard to the allegations set forth in the 
wonderful Hudson valley

Do numbers come before voices.

One man on the garden wall
the low wall drumming on his I think
tan untruth fawn or fox-red
leather briefcase hard sides.
Due. Floating. Deferred.

I made notes. I told lies. I said.
Hold this in my hand. Two.
Green, apple green or grass or mould.
Black new blue and a grey stain spreading
cracking and scratching scraping.
Dull or not that simple colour of money.

An incoherent beauty die-stamped out.
Is that enough? Imagine counterparties.
Circle around fresh water. Three. I learned to 

count reading the newspaper imitation
characterized the sublime happening again and again separating
them from us. Four. I bought an unusually grey silk necktie 
in the Marais pale stitching outline of petals soft metal
lead to go to the Opéra Bastile. It felt necessary, effective. More
nothing to do with politic or finance colour.
