tears for sale

                Those big brown eyes
                 gushing over the rims
     seeping through pores of a scowling face
     framed by two pigtails twirling on a finger tip
                 trickling downward 
         bleeding into the plaidness of the jumper
           leaving nary a trace of liquid
           on the scuffed brown oxfords.
