0. the world’s engine-room

the siren call
of starting up
the freedom of
a meritocracy.
but the market
is a cruel mistress
and merit is
only
rarely
rewarded.
more raw still;
trading those currencies,
equities, options and other
prepackaged bundles of value.
face to face with the inner
workings of the lair,
the engine-room of
the world is
calling.
