Dogs? or Cats?

 I know them when I see them.
 It's like winter days in  fall and spring,
 fascism, oligarchy, ultra-anything.
 It's like love and music and
 is that Art? My brain contains 
 templates, not definitions. Pegs
 and holes, friend, pegs and holes.
 I can guess it's a dog, or Bach,
 from the way the crows describe it
 or the look of your posture.
 If it fights its way out of the hole
 labeled CAT, it might fit better
 in ANARCHY or FREEDOM.
 Those who know how may 
 take an Allen wrench and fine tune
 the things I call planets, what fits
 in my Democracy, but I need
 to try a semicolon against my
 semicolon slot. Is this thing “war”?
