It’s not so much that time is money
but that money is a metaphor for time

We can slow its blur to a silver coin
A small flat circle Think of the penny

we flatten to a thin oval A penny made
by squishing a penny beyond its borders

An important quality of coins is
they should make a sound when dropped

and they should fit in the belly of
a plastic pig If you covet a thing

turn it over to read the meaning it has
been given It wants to be owned

It is brimming with your own desire
That’s why it ends in 99
