It Is a Part


It Is a Part

it wraps itself around you
a drop of water splats the top of your head
where the part is 

warm water in the tub
down your cheek it trickles
as you pull the plug
it escapes slowly down
the drain
where it collects in the pipes 

and your sorrow runs underground 
to the briney sea 
taste the tear that bathes the sea 
the tear is salt for your tongue 
to taste
