(16) build a raft so I can ford your whitewater veins

rafting down an artery

in case you forget,
you are made of the same stuff
as the sea.

(people always talk about being
made of stars but that’s a load of
hot air. you have to wait for me
to have curry before I can show
you burning gases of any
intestinal sort)

the extracellular fluid floating
in your bones has the same
ratios of salt

as any ocean
