because while some truths lend themselves to equations, others are best described in verse

alone

joshua tree, mojave desert

i sit inside abandoned silence,
wonder
how many more
tears can possibly fall
before my body
exhausts itself
of moisture,
my eyes, my skin,
my veins
dry up
and my heart
turn to husk,
a clenched fist made from
four caverns of stone
?

  1. Isn’t it amazing how
    you can think that you
    couldn’t possibly
    shed one more tear
    and then they just start
    flowing again?
