Healing is So Small

First Published in Moist Poetry Journal

Healing is So Small

The ocean is a seed

on a low, coughing land

and what does that mean

what does that mean

for us who are the salt

of the earth?

I know what it means

for those who are the light –

show the way, not yourself –

but do those

who are the salt

preserve or dissolve?
