star drop

"did you see
the star drop?"
she asked

excitement in
her gasp

"Don't you mean
a falling star?"
he asked

looking up from
his game

"no, i meant
a star drop!"
she said

with a little
too much
impatience

"All right. Don't
get mad at me."
he said

sighing at her
silliness

she looked down
and away
straightening her
expression
to nothingness

stay calm stay calm

she had meant
star drop
like a teardrop
from the sky

but it was too late
to explain this
now

she held in
the uniqueness
the strangeness
of her mind

one more time

and fell silent
in the hope
of normalcy

just let it be

(done)
