Location: Washington, D.C.
“hey u got any change?”
I heard from the vagrant
I had no coins
but I gave him a 2 dollar bill
“I haven’t seen one of these in a while,” he said

I asked, “One day this paper will be gone //
What will you do then?”

He reached in his sock and pulled out a card reader
and laughed “I’m prepared for the future // I take bitcoin and everything!”

Welcome to Monolith 202
it’s real out here

We are Messiah in Glytch
