A saline dissolution of limbs

The poem was inspired by this photo I took at the Riverbank State Park. The park has beautiful promenade views of the Hudson River, the Palisades and the George Washington Bridge.
The words fan on her palm
a delta of a fine silt of poems,
seeking the deep of an ocean.

In a saline dissolution of limbs,
an alluvium of spent syllables
muddy water in turbid hours,

to lace the sea floor in real
sentiment seeking safe passage
to the pulse of a watery earth,

where in the piscean gleam of
dissolved voices, is the treble
of having learned how to touch.
