Ode to a zipper

You are made for joining,
purposefully incomplete.

As you lace your fingers
we are kept warm.
When you smile your toothy smile
things are brought together.

Whenever I zip you today
remind me:

to let my incompleteness
be my gift,

to let my affection
keep warm this world,

to join the others, embracing,
holding the world together.
