"Explaining a joke is like dissecting a frog: you understand it better, but the frog dies in the process." -E.B. White

Microscopic grains of salt, mingling with unfiltered
Eye sweat, corrode my cheeks like waves
Against a cliff. They break bits of flaked skin
Off and hold them prisoner like
Mosquitoes trapped in amber,
So that when my tears finally
Splash to the ground,
They're full of pure me.
And I can honestly
say I am

The original title of this was "Salt," but then Teenink told me the title had to be at least 5 characters in length...
