There were almost tears
in the cereal aisle
at the supermarket

between shopping for coffee and cheese

And I leaned myself against the shelves
that tears would finally come
That my heart would finally break

Nothing happened.
And I shuffled through the aisle
along with busy Saturday shoppers
unaware of what they had almost seen.
