At the centre of it all,

in the politics,

in the claims

and counter-claims,

in the policies

and striving for order,

in the money,

in the ideologies about

who we are and are not,

in the beliefs about gods

and all that striving

for the significance of

it all, in the total of these

things and more, in all the

constructions that we say

are real, right there, there

are people.
