Tears[raindrops]

I can’t explain why they cling

to

nothing in return

or why the sun insists on making them sparkle

like glinting scissor blades

or a freshly washed car in winter

slowly they’ll dribble

down each pixel

onto the bricks

into the ground

across the table

into my mouth

away from the truth i know

the lies you’ve told

and the future we can’t have
