The Weep

Came out the drops...
Surrendered to
with humiliation...
As they humbly
find a way
narrowing down to
the lip corners
that once broadened
with dreams cupped.

A tide
as they came
swept away the dreams
left sediments on lips
salty as they
would taste now
dry, cracked, infertile
to again smile.
