thank you, Sky

thank you, Sky,

for weeping over me.

i weep over you too.

over you

and over the coffee i don’t like,

the despair i can’t persist in.

thank you for teaching me to weep

softly,

torrentially,

beautifully.

nothing can hide from your tears,

only pretend

and precaution

and prevaricate.

everything is the same

and everything is different

when you weep and weep.

 

you’re the one who has to cover everyone.

what about the days you don’t want to?

you might feel like hiding sometimes,

but we’d die if you did.
