a world in which my love is an ocean and you are a thirsty man [poem]

the truth in 3 parts
I warn you about the salt
but you say you always like water with a little flavor
the science cannot sway you
you dive to the bottom of my coral reef before you
open up your mouth to drink
anyone can tell you this is a terrible idea but voices are just
gurgling noises underwater
you leave me thirstier than you started
ocean water
is an illusion of hydration
but your body will know this and keep begging for more to drink
you may die trying to swallow the entire ocean
and never quench your thirst
bonus truth
I’m sorry
