Poetry Fit For Memorial Day

When I Cried

Scientists say
The chemical composition
Of tears
To the crier's emotion
Anger Angst Regret
Fear Longing Relief
Joy Anguish Pain
Each elicits
Its own
Distinct signature
Providing a purgative release
If your essence
Could be rendered down
To its most primordial parts
Identifiable ordonnance
This cocktail
Unique in nature
Is contained
In the drops
That slip from my eyes
