Crystalline Memory

We fell into memory
like sea salt
into soup pot
crystalline structure
losing integrity
dissolving into
warm liquid
like the bath water
you would pour me
delicately scented
lavender
when we belonged
to each other
we would lie close
skin to skin
on those long
winter nights
under thick blankets
and our boundaries
would dissolve
like foam on our tongues
