Zoo

Specimens.

Under glass.

Bound.

Ensnared.

Unidirectional.

Captured.

Marked.

Why?


Frozen in time

A raw collection

A time of forced connection.

Studied ~ mothering.

Touching.

Reaching.

Breathing.

Earthling-mandated rape of the soul

The callousness of bondage rules.


We will do this

together.

We will make this work.

Traversing toward total,

absolute

freedom.

Zoo.

A human zoo.
