un-anarchic

Poem #262 from a series of poems drawn from the imagination and collected as: a Bachelard reverie.

Back to Bachelard and me – Introduction


an anarchy
of claws
is self-defeating

it is not the way
for you and I

we retreat we extend

we sharpen
in one motion

the flesh we mark
is four parallels

the order
among our claws
is military

whusshh
whusshh

I slice the air

whusshh
whusshh

you paw it
too

no anarchy
among claws
for you
and me
