The Propane Tank

No ideas but in names.
Common names seem like things,
Special names like people,

Places, or big events,
While numerical names seem
Like universal truths.

There’s a hierarchy then
Among the names, and when
Someone insists on things,

They’re only challenging
That hierarchy (a name).
By the way, an idea

Is a name for theories
Needing names to express—
No ideas but in things,

The only way to God
Is Jesus, a black hole
Swallows information,

Propane tanks signify
The Anthropocene’s here,
With their shapes all the same,

Industrial metal,
Fossil fuel extracted,
Refined, shipped globally,

Thus exemplifying
Economic theories.
No theories but from games.
