Tell me a story
A story about a little girl
Her face turns red
Like the wind picking up and leaves flashing white before a storm
Scrunching up like a pug’s face
she opens her mouth wide


Tell me a story
A story about a young woman
She takes a deep breath
As if to hold it underwater
Trying to take good things from the air
But the corners of her mouth droop down as she exhales
her eyes darken


Tell me a story
A story about a lone drop
Water, H2O
Salty and tangy
It finds its way down a plump cheek
Rolls fast and hot


Tell me a story
A story about a river
It is strong, it is relentless
It is rolling


Tell me a story
A story about train tracks
Tracks
Tracks of the tear meandering down a thin cheekbone
slow and steady
slow and steady


Tell me a story about a drop
A dropoff of the land
Where water flows, water falls
Coming to the edge


Coming to the edge


Tell me


The tear falls
Over the waterfall
The tear falls


Tell me a story about the bottom of the ocean


It is cold
So cold
