Culture & Anarchy in Late Democracy

Culture & Anarchy in Late Democracy

Adam among the jackals       and jackdaws
read his father’s books         winning fantastic

knowledge: the heights       of angels, where
hail is kept, names for       everything—a raspberry is

composed of drupels. Even          as he read the names
pounced, battered, chest and       jaw. That’s how

he knew them       worth knowing.
Kept them          in the east under a dragon tree.

Children from other clans approached, curious.
They were well within reach, always within reach
but somehow unreachable.
