Look at her—
the drama queen.
she falls into the river weeping,
commanding the “Ooos and ahs”
of walking humans,
drawing birds to nest beneath her green shimmering tears—
while I sit here,
waiting for sister sun’s warming
to break apart night’s cold rear end
just a little bit earlier
so I can leave already.
