of skylines

as much love
as i have felt
for cities
and tall buildings
and skylines

i cannot help
how they remind me
that all of us
are in some type
of prison

more literal
and more cruel
than others

more subtle

we think
we cannot live

when we have lived
without them before

when some people
still live without them

to grow
to love your
prison is an
act of survival

to think
that your prison’s
all there is
is an act
of surrender
