Whose subversion is this, anyway?

  Common, an equation
  of work and wetness
  that persists in an
  unspoken projection
  of brute nakedness,
  toward they who la-
  bour, out of light,
  yet dreaded anyway,
  as if someday, some
  debt might be paid,
  or worse: some fact
  affirmed in school.

  One of these photos
  was a work of espi-
  onage. It had to be
  coherent and timely.
  Why is it so alive?
