The Royal We



This collection, this amalgamation
of impulses and instincts and drives
and subroutines, this parliament
of competing voices and cooperative
thoughts, these emotions, these notions,
this mandala of edited memories,
these calculations, these assumptions,
these desires, the dissonance
and the redundancy, the damage,
the variation and the deviance,
the specific development, the error,
the offense of senescence,
this me, this I, changed by time
and experience, this life, and chance.
