The differences between a red horse

And a tin of beans

Are incomparably 

Minute. It seems

That this satisfactory 

Idea produced  a tainted discourse

In French theoretical circles

After the Liberation. During

The psychoanalytic wars,

When spitting factions split, causing

Faint and equivocal applause,

New rules arose, a circus

Of dogma. Meanwhile,

In the blue field

Behind the sanatoria,

The tin of beans wheeled

Away, expressing its euphoria,

an equine, vacant smile..
