City of Ideas ~ Peter Taylor



You must be in your own right
a member of the city of ideas
                             C. P. Cavafy

Habits line a path where bonecage
drags idea to his death,
raw metaphor locked
in the mind's erratic crucible.

My selves enact a war:
the one animal, needing
restraint; the other escaping
the skin's excursion

into raw zones, suburbs
of a universal sanctuary,
the conscious hologram
of thought's flawless crystal.
