United

United

by JD DeHart.

I want to spell united, but

too frequently spell untied,

the ends never quite looping

together.  There is no fork

sticking out of this situation,

for sure.  I once thought I was

perfect, but it turns out I was

wrong.  I used to think utopia

was around the corner,

but the only utopia I have met

was a girl who left quickly.
