zip line

the metal zippers and their teeth
gnaw at my mental health, wanting
to sew up the inequities causing
disillusionment along my neurogenic
pathway,
all so that they can stifle the
one love that sticks directly
in the middle of the zip line.

i’ll forever be halfway open and closed;
such is the curse of escaped true love.
