VICARIOUS EGO November 17, 2012

Posted by brownsweaters in poetry.

It stood there on the page

Vicarious Ego

With all the pomp of a Latin phrase

Shouted gladly at gladiator games.


Or a Peruvian child,

Weak and shivering,

With parents walking the streets

Shouting, “Vico, Vico, where are you?”


But neither matched the inglorious truth,

The process bringing the two together,

The understanding – with ego’s involvement,

All thoughts and actions are vicarious.
