  1. The Ties That Bind

    A door is not the slam it makes,
    A human not the sob.
    A fence is not a creaking gate,
    A planet not a mob

    Of unrelated characters
    Untouched, detached, alone.
    A marble’s not a shard of glass
    To slice you skin and bone.

    Instead, it’s all a field of mines,
    A net that tangles legs
    And trips us each one equally
    From oligarchs to dregs.

    Expanding swirling filaments
    From which we’ll never roam.
    Discomfort’s what we’ll always share:
    A minefield’s not a home.
