Zeus’ Greatest Fear

Greek mythology tells us
that each human was born with
four legs, four arms, and a head with
two faces,
but Zeus split these creatures, sentencing them
to a life of searching for their
other half, because
he feared the power humans would
So is the human life the most
when we are
in love?

I know this much
is true, I know that from this mythology,
i can deduct
that humans are in love
from the beginning. I know that fear is
derived from love, I know that
when my fingertips meet
yours, I have undone the twists
and tangles of
Zeus’ action.

I know that
in this moment, I began
to understand
why Zeus separated
like these.
