    Every Precious Drop

    Salute life with urgency
    cling to it with fervor
    like you would a diamond statue
    as it melts before your eyes.
    Throw down your bag
    heavy and bulging
    and kneel with hands cupped
    over the drain.
    Snatch the trickling beads
    before they fall, forever lost
    down the pipe system
    like I wish someone would for my tears.
    Savor life like every drop is precious
    and the seconds and the tears
    are diamonds sweeter than gold,
    slipping past eternity
    lest you catch them in your palms.
