Unzipped by Lynn White

 

Closed
up tight
focused
seeing straight ahead
into the dark,
the grey,
the black.
Closed.

Unzip,
unbutton,
loosen up
see the blue behind.
Unzip
unbutton
loosen up.
You can see it now
if you look.
You can feel
the brightness
that lay hidden.
Unzip
unbutton
expose
reveal all.
You’ll feel better for it.
