Wallace Stevens

Castilleja exserta, purple owl's clover [Conejo Open Space Foundation]

from Wallace Stevens's Owl’s Clover:

Life on a Battleship [excerpt]

The war between classes is
A preliminary, a provincial phase,
Of the war between individuals. In time,
When earth has become a paradise, it will be
A paradise full of assassins.
