As......... advertisement  feeds your numerical mathematical power

   make an executive directive

   get a career off the ground

   the oates  in the box

   of computational power

   are solidly more sure and practical as

    energy for your down

    than the money put in to the color of the box doesnt matter

    less pays the air

    fare passage

its rising descent

from hand

to mouth

   Employs and pays


      a wage to thin  air

        before or after

             the emptied box

               of catchy tunes

       and vitamined bulk

      of colored cardboard pastries


     jingle in your pocket

    and  pays NASA build a thin air traveling



      a  racket

       of  a greener grass elsewhere



As.........the scientist  sees

his rises and falls

the same as gravity

goes up and down

makes the nutrients

go in one end

a physical process of out the other

like money comes and goes faster

without an extra box of oates

and scientific notes

'specially from a vacation

in good weather only

in Bangladesh

on his all weather solar powered boat

shared like the rest of the conceived  generosities

thought cure mankind

of a sour power grown

  from sour musical notes

   played at the dark corner

of the block on the lower ends of town




the same as all things go up or down

like water vapor drives a steam engine

an invisible fine line


the truth

 and a knowing of wants


    makes tick the  timing

    in the rhyming of the shoals in perspective

    to  the song makers melodies

      filter round

raise an ear anywhere

spread his knowledge

over come whose fear

   of  what anything isnt reasoned with a measure

       from the theory of relativity

          must be an unordinary tone to the ear

for his reasearches

   on the rounds of up and down

send his food like



out the top of the box of cereal

 and eventually

on to the ground

     where'd it all come from

   the colors put on the box?

Grow on its own

   like  money a fairy god mother

         puts under your


       IRS never sees

                     thin air


a fine line

between want to know an invisible  truth

and want the money

    put in the box of cereal

as a finely heard lyrical

 in the ticking of the round
