I take You

I take you
Like I take
A grain of salt

As if
The measured, rich taste
Of sea encrusted skin
Sin or random sex

Mattered

Yet I honour the taking
Of salty grains
Of you

Its dry lake, outback crunch
Its drought barren coastal grit
Its Sodomite sting

Like life’s salty pillars

Mystical
Essential
And blessed

As a hot line of sweat sails down the muscled crease of my back

I take You
