In the dark theatre cheeks caught tears
flowing unquenched sorrow, unsought tears.
Why do you deny human emotion?
Why is water in your eyes not tears?
Meanings read from wet excretions
Morning dew, the cold night brought tears.
Every cell a hidden universe,
oceans hold all, even shallot tears.
Lightning flashes on wedding day
What bridegroom, what bride forgot tears?
Hurricanes drench ontheland, clouds
weep wind-breath, until death boycotts tears.
