What Happens When You Ask a Poet to Define an IRA?

From Eric Bourland's post over at the BAP blog (click on quote to read the whole post):

An IRA is a tesseract.

No, that won't do. It is not a tesseract. But it is an imaginary thing like a tesseract or money itself or any conversation between any two people. An IRA is a tesseract an agreement between me and a group of people who have much more money than I. The agreement is, I will give money each month to these people who already have a great deal of money.

Later, I will die.
