salt (ii)

walk till your feet burn.
the sun sears the skin off your heels.
salt dries into your wounds
till you can’t tell
where your body ends and
pain begins.

walk till your eyes burn.
the heat dries the tears off your face
the sweat off your neck
till you can’t tell
where the sea ends and
pain begins.

walk till your blood burns.
till anger boils the words off your soul
your burdens off your heart
till you can’t tell
where the body ends and
the sea begins.
