Salt

Salt

not the
sweat of the brow
variety

nor a seasoning
in moderation

fanning out
spreading
from a box of
yellow
on tandem axles

leaving a
gritty
white
powder

coating
drying on
the road
tires
windows

smearing onto
coat sleeves
clothes
skin

leaving
a reminder

the taste
of a Northeast
road trip
in winter
