Salt

Salt (Randyjw; February 2, 2017)

 

I’m too simple to understand what you mean

I was made with the salt of too much ocean

to sow a fertile earth

to keep held back

from my sleeves or from its screens

It’s everywhere that can be seen

glistening on my brow and behind the backs of my knees

Caught up in rivulets

never missed

in the blue hope shining of abalone

never gone, never go, always been
