Being Worth Our Salt

Being Worth Our Salt

We

claiming

whiteness

need to crystallize resolve

until,

into

dense grains of do,

the we of white

can live the ways

of livening,

of freshening,

of being

savor

salting on

whatever

drab and dull asleep

needs a zestiness

of know,

enough

of us

to make a taste,

to cause recall

to zing from cores

of gourmet lore

the always there.

Now to be known:

Delicious.
