A Good Cry


I cried this morning. 


It felt like a sadness 

that had been put 

on hold


Like a plug in the wall 

of a dam

had come undone

and rivers

came gushing out. 


Like an irate customer

who had listened to

lift music for

four whole minutes. 


Like the crash

of a twenty-two

year-old tree 

as it was felled. 


Even slightly like

the chocolate at 

the end of an

ice cream cone.
