Ricoeur treat

one self in another masked

as some super self, or shadow

disguised as quickening sand

through an egg timer

that leads to Easter island

or China syndrome, yaks

at the Great Wall divide

competing falling empires

and when they serve up

the dim sum dumplings

you can't be found and

some voice says, Yo no soy

saucy insouciant smile

bucky bucky beaver dent

oh boy
