Salt-Shaker: A Poem

Updated on December 17, 2011

Salt Shaker

Salt of the earth

Granuals thrown

Over the sinister

Shoulder to the ocean

Center of the universe

Cheaper to chase her

Accept her petastal

Pluck petals to settle

To love or hate her

Salt shaker

Left on the table

Get a grip and be

Mentally stable

Or stay with her

In crystal pillars

Settle into the cellar

Not very supersticious

More concerned with

High blood pressure

Symbol of status

Elemental cleanser

She sits on banks

Of shriveled rivers

Sifts through fingers

Stings open wounds

Preserves my food

My mouth and mood

Parched sand dunes

Doppleganger for sugar

A partner for pepper

Cruel thirst quencher

For a cast-away

Serenade her marinade

Massaged in steaks

Stains on her face

Rain falls in lakes

Melting snow flakes

As her salt shakes
