Saline Water and Seaweed 

The word “love” isn’t what I expected it to be. 

For some, it’s a mixture of saline water

and the unmistakable taste of seaweed;

Not the slow and long sip of wine

which is to be gulped down. 

They taste it, masquerade it behind their teeth

and feel the juices upon their lips. 

They have no intention of swallowing it down

but the act of chewing is staged well

until they spit it out on my face.
