What Is Identity Anyway

  • A specified person you say,
    A condition,
    Constitutively independent?
    Perhaps a contradiction . . .

    You see I can be a multiple,
    Never fixed to one 'identity'
    Always flowing into; from, and
    Out of locatable sites.

    The slippery slide that is subjectivity!
    Each narrative, symbol & setting
    will link differently and
    attempt to pin qualitative aspects
    within a greater order of identification.

    True identity?
    What is 'truth' anyway when it
    relies upon constitutive authority?
    So you see again a contradiction
    A nullification, an obliteration.

    'Identity'? A Fantasy! A distraction
