SHADOW SELVES

A confrontation of shadow selves

ethereal you, invisbile I,  who try to capture

and taste the tears of God,

or to run fingers across her smiling lips,

Failing, we sink beneath or hide behind

the brutaL waves of---ego:

Egos, wearing layers of frightening masks

called, greed, hate, superiority, and power.

It dresses in idfferent colors and cuts of cloth;

demanding it's own way.

We lift hands holding guns,

or fly planes that bomb already ruined lands

into more dust---each grain runs red

with blood.

It's the illusion of Monopoly,

whoever gets the big blues,

Parkplace and Boardwalk---wins.
