Sep 2017
have you ever cried upside down?
felt the tears stream up your face
down with gravity
and into all the wrong places?

felt the droplets, cooling as they race away from their mirrored origin,
slide over furrowed brow
across forehead and temple to dampen the sliver-thin hairsβ€”
the ones that glow when lit from behind
β€”and rest where skin meets strand?

no
you have not felt these things
how could you have?
your world is always right side up.
