Decathexis

By Sanjeev Sethi

Decathexis

In long-established fasteners
of familial zippers,
my aloneness leaves me unfurled.
We are so easily robbed
when we give ourselves to others.
Who will want to be a professional boxer
if epistaxis is the only reward?
When kindness is home,
no-one eyes the egress.
