salty (extended play)

Evie Shockley

i find you embedded in the earth permeating it like salt

you add a fine white spice to my diet like salt

at night you glisten the hot surface of my skin like salt

you send my blood pounding through my arteries like salt

you stick to my fingers until i lick you off like salt

at my feet you crumple into a little spill of bad luck like salt

you symbolize the gritty edges of my outrage like salt

i grind you into my wounds and you bite like salt
