The Memory for Tears.

They say elephants never forget,
but it's eyes
that I wish
didn't have such a good memory.

Their memory for tears
is uncanny.

I shed a tear or two
almost daily,
from seeing or hearing
some beautiful
or inspiring
or devastating thing.

And then I can feel
more tears
just waiting.

preying on me.

The edges of my eyes
feel watery
and tired
every time I blink.

Sometimes for hours afterward.

They remember me crying.
They can't forget.
