The Escaping Tear. (dedicated to Joel. M.) 6/1/96

A tear falls down my cheek
I catch it in my hands.
It glistens in the moonlight
and splashes as it lands.

Very quickly it dissappears.
I wonder where it goes.
It was there but now it's gone
Vanishing under my nose.

I caught you in my hand,
Just like that very tear.
You sparkled as you landed.
In my palms i held you near.

So too, like that very tear,
You would not be there for long.
Because when I looked a little later
You followed that tear and had gone.
