cure for anything is salt water -
sweat, tears, or the sea. ~Isak Dinesen
who by their destiny would be lovers
Are advised a course of salt water -
hand, finding his;
Darkened beach, jeweled velvet sky.
Entering the ocean -
arms, holding her close;
Darkened room, heavy with scent.
Entering each other -
lives, compelled apart;
Darkened world, as the end of everything.
Entering separate voids -
Delilah, March 24, 1998
