falling

drop

darkening the faded blue shirt with tiny circles

drop

blotching the powdery beige glow of rounded cheeks

drop

smearing the ink on the lined page

drop

moistening the fingers that wipe it away

drop

forming dark, meandering lines

drop

their salt sliding between lips without a sound

drop

hands opened, letting go

drop

hair falling in surrounding curtains

drop

no sound

drop

no answer

drop

no word

drop

the image dissolving

drop

drop
