Thor, the Norse God of Thunder, had a hammer named Mjölnir. Mjölnir was considered a fierce weapon that could level mountains and summon lightning with every blow. In this poetry blog, every Thursday, (Thor’s Day), Mjölnir will forge only song - sing of the mysteries and beauties of the world.

Balance sheets and coverage ratios.
Accretion schedules.
A prospectus.
These were the needed things.
To assess the risk.
To anticipate the anecdote
before the ending.
To know who the lender was,
the borrower be,
and when along the graph
they’d trade places.

What was needed
was more prudence
and fewer caveats with zeros.
And a promissory note
stating the venture
would not be a callable affair.
That the investment
would reach full maturity
and secure the return,
the reaping hoped for,
which had always been
part of the inspiration
to speculate, in the first place.
