grouped and regrouped, the
orders and suborders, the
genus, divisions, as
white sheets flap in the
wind, awaiting
starched corners

each clade and domain,
these flightless bipeds
basking in self-created
glory on their pavingstones

phylum, class, and legion,
must keep their order,
red and black-ink lined,
so clear as to cut
