Ego

 A hall of mirrors

Children crawl along the floor

Through the shards of glass

 

Tiny reflections

A million refractions

Illuminations

 

Every image cuts

Sharp screams stream from wailing throats

Bereft of ego

Condemned


Alone and drifting
Searching for the way, guideless
Wailing in the wind

Hollowed by the light
Still as a pillar of salt
There is no recourse

There is no harvest
All my clever thoughts, like seeds
Cast in the dry fields

We leap for meaning
Like green shoots reaching for light
Wither and fall down
