Design of the Week | The Money by Eloisa Amezcua



Here's to 2019, and the hope that this year treats you better than the last. To get you started on the right foot, take a listen to writer extraordinaireEloisa Amezcuaread her poem "The Money" as part of Kenyon Review's Out Loud series. The magic lies in how she reads the crossed out lines, which you can see below:

The Money

after Bobby Chacon
 

I don’t care about the title
I’m in this for the money

I care about the title
I care about the money

I’m in this for the title
I don’t care about the money

I’m for the money I don’t care
I don’t care I’m for the title

the title don’t care about I
the money don’t care about the title

I’m about the money
I’m about the title

I’m the money I care about in this
