Mermaid tear drops


pitter 

patter 

heartbeats 

of heaven’s hopes 

tiptoe 

upside

down on 

clouds before they

fall 

like raindrops,

dive 

like rainbow colored mermaids

looking 

for sweet amniotic seas

fall

through angry protester’s hands 

carrying 

umbrellas and “We have the right to 

choose

drought” posters …

…mermaids

splitter

splatter

softly

 like bits of electricity

while the world

microwaves

 its “good” intentions

and pours itself a Bloody Mary 

the sky

grows 

pregnant with soggy foggy 

mermaid tears

when pitter patter heartbeats

patter.

pitter.

.stop.
