Capitalism at Harvard
José Olivarez

Right after the pep rally
concert is shut down
I turn to Ben and say
“This is what you get
when you put all these capitalists
together in one place:
Everyone tries to shove
their way to the front
And the people in front
who can’t go any further
just push back.”

“Yeah, it’s like the ’80s all over again,”

Ben says as I watch
the back of the audience trickle
down to the gates.
