The Salt

Over rocks and gravel
I stick my tongue
hunting for the sweet taste
of salt
My body needs it
My body feeds it
the sweat needs it
to be
the sweet taste of salt
Turning over stones
I lick underneath
dislodging the creatures
whom I seek
I could be at this
another week for
the sweet taste of salt
