the cycle

it is a fact that the grass is much greener where you water it, yet
while these stiff blades craved a flood
the salty waterworks provided a temporary
wonder
until the salt reached its roots and stung my tongue, licking long lost wounds
a reminder—
the grass that is dead can yet still be watered
