Taste the air

Every time we’re together
you’re better than I remember.
I was so prepared to love you
with the whole of me, as much breath
as my lungs can facilitate. In a world
that ignites a certain, calm hate-
aimed towards ignorance and idiocy,
you are a buoy in a sea
I can’t drink from.
Salt tea.
