Drip drop

Drip. 

‘Akira, are you crying? I thought you had a good day?’

‘It was great.’

‘So they are tears of happiness then?’

Drip. 

‘No, no, no. Sad, sad, sad.’

‘Why are they sad tears?’

Drip.

‘I don’t know. Ask my eyes.’

Drip. 

‘Okay, I’ll ask: Akira’s eyes, why are you crying?’

‘They say, “Maybe this is all for nothing.”‘

‘What is? You or the crying?’

Drop. 

‘Both.’
