Permanence

The smell of salt still lingers.
It is almost too dark to see.
Dip your hands in bioluminescence.
Swirl your fingers in the water. Dye your
nails and bathe in the glow.
Let the droplets coalesce on skin.
Smooth contact. Touch

me. Start at the eyes.
end at the neck. Wait
don’t forget the lips. Let
the liquid pool near your collarbone.
Can you find me?
If only we can kiss the
stars and light ourselves ablaze.
