“At A Party Recently I Saw” by Paul Strohm


At a party recently I saw
Kierkegaard lounging in the curve of a sensuous chair
and in a corner
Kant leaning against a dark wall covering
scrolling his big fat finger
at a Wittgenstein arms akimbo
threatening in his silent way
stoic Hopper in green beads, red leather
mulling small actions
for Derrida’s roundness deconstructed
a karma sultry
alienating a hirsute Marx in his cups
behind rood screens
from depressive Calvin institutions.

It was a hell of a good time,
Thank God I didn’t have to clean up!
