New Theory of Ruin Value

Peter Milne Greiner



It is logical that I give


this to you because you want it and I


do not    That being said it comes


not without the usual caveats


that tend to agglomerate at the heart


of such talismans   Caveats are hidden


meanings and embarrassments


we offer our keen awareness of in


advance—to eligible parties


I present them to you


here in order of appearance
