separate ego (by sayge hansen)

its daunting
San Francisco tidal waves
white sheets in the downstairs room
take a left into the mind
where the body is grieving

rough calluses tangled in my curls
pronouncing your last name over and over
San Francisco tidal waves
the overbearing letters in your mail

because of conceptual thinking we got stuck
with this concept of a self
an ego that needs constant reassurance
and is separate from everything else
