The Shape of Water

we do not need
we do not need
a shared
written language
we have eyes that
truly see
lips that speak
a common tongue
shared palate
for the aroma
the taste
of salt that glitters
on each other’s skin
when we flow like silk
against each other
and boundaries dissolve
like sea foam
at dawn
