Susan Hawthorne #87 five rivers, Cocytus

the Acheron is not enough
by the time Charon
drops me on the bank
between the Acheron
and the Cocytus
I am wailing and lamenting
everything I've done wrong
I am calling out for the lost ones
those poisoned or shot

who would have known
I had so many tears in me?
tears like blood
bursting from me
