word/salt

every word that
dribbles
from my poetic
longs to sleep
in your lovely
ventricle

to be swept along
through
your arteries
to finally nestle
lovingly
into your brain

maybe this one
will convey
what it means to me
when i whisper my love
in the middle
of the night

these words will
saturate your dreams
when you awake
you will see me
in the morning sun
and just know

then hopefully
the tears falling
as i pen these odes
will be worth more
than the salt
on my cheeks
