keep my tears…

Keep my tears in your flask

So that later

when things are quiet

and you are thirsty

you will remember you have them

you will remember

that somewhere I am

still

crying sweetly

weeping softly

Later when things are quiet

And you are thirsty

drink them

savoring the last briny aftertaste

a reminder of the coast

the sandy beach

the sailing gulls

that  night

witnessed only by the stars

and the tide

coming in
