Polar-iced Place

As Blumenberg might say, work on myth:

Polar Bears, Polar Bears

Polar bears are great monstrous big creatures,
but they don't really live at a pole,
for two great physical force features
result more in a petal-fugal hole.

Or an oblate spheroid called Terra,
spinning tales in the darkness around,
in a life-world we fear to call "Vera,"
where monsters like these bears abound.

And polar bears aren't the earth's only fierce creatures.

Nice evocation of Husserl and Habermas.

Thanks. I've always liked that expression. One of the things I like about poetry, by the way, is that I can toss in all sorts of references and have them make sense even if contradictory.
