Imperfect Tears

Stones & Tears

Crying about what doesn’t make sense—
      stones in the heart,
      stones in the belly,
      stones in the head,
      stones in the shoe,
      stones in flight—
unaimed message,
      stones in soup—
unarmed hunger,
      stones with a bill
due upon receipt,
      stones wrapped in paper
meant to explain.

Stones, stones,
of unweighed hardness,
expound on what doesn’t make sense—
to tears, tears,
of unweighted value,
tears of imperfect reply.
