3. Salt of the Earth


Salt of the Earth

yesteryear's letters
thrown up to the sky

kaleidoscope of sugar
full of sap and clap too
incongruent rambles i love you
idyllic declarations i want you
unrequited warbles I MISS YOU!

syrup repulsive as joke candy
that turns to salt
after two sucks

haha, sucker!

yet you swallow the joke

get the gas face
like third bass
or alfalfa or buckwheat
after castor oil

you swallow deceptive salt
like sugar-coated pride
which comes before the fall

and how You doing?


oh, very well!

so long as that fall
is broken by a bed
of sap and clap
and sugar from the sky
