The Sound of Rapinoe is about breaking out of the cultural egg and the liberation and joy one feels at being reborn. As a metaphor Rapinoe points to this basic desire and joy that stirs inside us all. If we have taken refuge in the Egg and the logic that holds it together, when someone breaks out of the egg and dares to celebrate it, we feel our now contraction in the egg. We deny our own wings. We blame the person dancing outside of the egg for our pain, and then crucify them or stone them to get rid of our remembrance that we have not be born, that we are still in the egg of culture.
All of our metaphors for this dance of freedom become our heroes, are spiritual and moral leaders. We put them in statues and make them decorations for our egg. We honor their stone forms, but when someone actually breaks out of the egg, we stone them with the rocks from our statutes.
Even our Confederate generals are metaphors for the one who dared to break out of the egg, in this historical case, the egg of the industrial north. When we make the egg breaker a monument, we can be sure we are still in the egg.
