I think of seawater because of its briny tang, because when, by accident, it trips into my mouth, coats the inside of my cheeks in a clear, chloride gloss.
I think of seawater because of the way it blooms along the shore, dazzling white jewels slinking up our toes, our feet left with a glimmer, slippery and clean.
I think of seawater because your hair was soaked, chestnut brown trickles wriggling down your face and I could smell the beach in the pool of your neck, fresh and transparent
at the crook of your lips.
