By Carl Scharwath

Lacrimal glands creating
basal, emotional, and reflex tears
they say are good for your eyes.

The hypostases of three
in a washtub of emotional water
overflowing in sad memories.

The misery of life within,
when a memory of you evaporates like
leaves migrating in the wind.

Your name on my lips, aching
to talk to you again in the
quiet moods when I forgot the words.
