Life As Your Teardrop

by Mortal Utopia   Jul 13, 2018

They said I was born as a teardrop
to evade your grasp
with the versatile morphology of water:

escaping the many worlds
you opened like flowers
upon your hands

when you wiped me away.
You remember,
don't you?

Those lines and creases
that wind by; those roads
and paths upon your palms –

how I wished I knew
their destinations; how I wished
I understood them

in my fleeting presence.
