like salmon for the saturated

Run your knuckles along
my spine
full of loss and falling
fish hooks for crawling
along the rivers edge
you said
too many things to forget
too many things to contain
but it makes great bait.

These scales are different now
impervious plates
swimming against your tide
like salmon for the saturated
catch me if you can.
