Property

July 15, 2021



Give to Caesar that which is Caesar’s.

It’s not about taxes, you know.

All property is his

From the shoes on your feet

To your nice summer home on the coast.

All his.

All of it, paid for in money

Bearing his face for a reason.

A reminder, silent like steel

That which is property

Is that which is Caesar’s.

In contrast to life.

Naked life.

Bloody life.

Shitty life

Smiling.

That life for which death is irrelevant.

That slippery life.

Ghostly life.

Ungraspable life.

That life where even the stones have life.

Of course, it’s not your life

Since possession is impossible,

But at least it’s not his.
