Samos Boat Trip by Sarah L Dixon

Shock of salt water
in a mouth that opened too soon.

The balm of cucumber

The buoyancy of swimming 
in open ocean

A wedge of watermelon
saturated in sweetness.

The sensation of being nowhere
on your back where all is sky. 

Aniseed warmth of Ouzo
adds to the August
heat of the Aegean Sea
