Salt Memories

I remember hearing somewhere
that all water on Earth
has somehow just
always been here
I don’t know if it’s true
but I like this notion
of the past lives of waves
that are gathering
at my ankles

and I can’t help but wonder
if salt can hold memories

does something about my presence
remind her of
someone before my time
a soldier falling to his knees
an author seeking inspiration

and centuries from now
when I am mere dust
will this same wave
crash ashore again
and think of me
with a sense of
deja vu
