Salty air

Saltier than usual 

Pungent summer, 

Comforting in all her naturalness

Fruits and fish and seaweed decomposing under the sun’s gaze

I breathe it in while waiting in line to cross the water

Heart mending

All is as it is

All is.

Cars, people, sky, breeze, trees pretending to be tame, but I see their wild side

Their root system is the same as mine and yours

Their source just as primal, just as constant, just as beyond judgement as every baby, every mountain, every snail

Can you feel the quickening?
