Tears hidden in the rain

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “If I Die in Juárez” by Sasha Pimentel: violins, belly, ruin, protest, strings, broken, husk, frets, sound, brittle, bridge, keeping

Tears hidden in the rain

Sound of violins

Broken and lots of pain

Protesting of sins

Sound of violins

With strings so brittle

Fret on little things

The bridge in the middle

Broken and lots of pain

Like a ruin show

Empty husk down the drain

There’s no afterglow

Protesting of sins

Keeping up with the hurt

Being struck with pins

Simple word that I blurt*
