WHAT IS AN IDEA?

What is an idea
    but a conversation marked in time?
    A moment of movement
    A collision of words.

What is it about ideas
    that we easily locate them in each other?
    A captured thing.
    A moment owned by one.

What are ideas
    if not viewed as collective voices?
    Expressed through one person
    Expressed to maintain Ego.

When will we recognise our parts
    True togetherness.
