MA work

There is a small drop at the top of the window frame; she stays there shaking against the sky that breaks her into a thousand extinguished glows, she is growing and she dangles, she is going to fall yet she doesn't fall, she still doesn't fall. She is hanging by all her nails, she doesn't want to fall and you can see how she holds on with her teeth while her tummy grows. Now she is a royal drop that hangs majestically, and suddenly ZUP, there it goes, PLAFF, undone, nothing, a viscosity in the marble. Sad drops, round innocent drops. Goodbye drops. Goodbye.
