Loving Soundbites

Pages

stacked

on

top

of

newspaper-thin pages of love's story

The stack, a phonebook impossible to tear

each layer of truth, each highlighted moment thin and breezy

Slim and easy

Strong

Sideways they're baleen plates

snagging bits of barnacled goodness

The day's school of life… fish?

The tidbits of krill and shrimp

Alight on my tongue

feed a soul as large as the ocean itself

with confectioner's delights

loving soundbites

grainy sweet words

whispered, wrapped in pink paper

vibrate the waters of my inner ear

Inseparablefromthe

drops

oftheocean
