Distillation.

Don’t you ever feel like
you want to distill yourself?

To take a part of you and
do like you did in high school chemistry?
Evaporate the hatred, the prejudices,
Boil away the inequities, the insecurities,
the pettiness, the spitefulness,
and then
To take what’s left,
the quintessential salt that will not be ostracized,
and cast it over the ones you love, saying,
“This is who I am.”
