“a little salty”

Written for:  The Twiglets #173 – “a little salty”

Her cloying sweetness
needed an infusion
of saltiness.

I love when my lips
are wet with the taste
of sea salt.

she eats beef stew
tender meat, spring vegetables
sadly lacking salt

There was an old Salt from New Hampshire
who missed his old life as a crabber.
Needing new pass time
tried out pantomime
but his old fish scent clung to his outerwear.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
