Off-campus Exercise in Academia

long into the night, sober yet capricious,
we drank in each other’s company chilled
over rocks of deep conversation glass-
eyed in revelations of poetic
notion and philosophies more hip than
any frog de siècle might toss in with quiet
contempt, nor nihilistic kraut argue
as dismissive of kant . . . we argued deep
into gone night the truth of inclusion,
our pluralism no country courting,
nor city rationalization, but
the willing cooperation of thinkers
bent on an assimilation of all thought
into some organic matrix of words.
