Poetry by Farah Lawal Harris

Tear Control


at most given moments,
i could burst into tears if it were acceptable
to do so in public.
but it’s not so
i push them down,
squeeze them in a corner and i hope
i can forget about them.
and then when i need
them at an appropriate moment,
they are nowhere to be found.
the tears have turned hard
and so has my heart
…no emotion.
