Transform the Ego

The Ego
Needs to be broken into tiny little pieces
and fed to billions of people
so that all can be equal and share a common thought

The Ego
Needs to be pierced in the eye
with acupuncture needles and twisted
until the meridian flows of milky nectar

The Ego
Needs to be melted and smeared across continental lines
and flushed through sewers pouring into the center of the earth
where molten lava can scorch and harden around it like an island

The Ego
Needs to be transformed by understanding and acceptance
shared through finger tips, crossing lips and forgiving arms
so that all can live together

Poem from Heirs of November: Poems, Prose and Protests (2017)
