Of Perfect Fungibility

Wallace Stevens wrote money
Is a kind of poetry. The US
Supreme Court ruled money

Is a kind of free speech. Isn't it
The whole point of money, the dream
Of perfect fungibility, one thing

Translating everything, everything
Exchangeable in an ideal world
Of discrete and equal units,

Like voters, like dollars, like
Typewriter keys composing
Infinite patterns of words?
