when salt is sweet

next time someone sprinkles your soul in salt with word accessories like
remember these necklaces are gifts from pink grin dolphins in the rain light
not meant for everybody and if they had the charmed fortune to land on
your babe head then wrap them around you now like cream feather duvets
on a pine night and tell them you love them like you are reading a book to
fairy children because emotions are an infinite starry night that burn hard
but also burn silver and sometimes extra extra gold
