In money, the distinction between

Coins and notes is akin

To particles and wavicles in the atom.

An atomic society will always

Uphold such a distinction,

Even if, in its bureaucratic decadence,

It produces more coins than notes.

For coins correspond, in their concrete realism, to

The particle aspect of the atom, whereas

Notes correspond, in their abstract naturalism,

To its wavicle aspect.

The former are phenomenal, the latter noumenal;

Although the latter in some sense precede the former

In regard to their autocratic essence.
