day 227: metaphor

a friend told me today that in ghana names have days
if i could
i would name thursday for the salt in the breeze
it is missing here
like you are
i would name you after all the parts of the ocean i miss
because like you
i haven't touched the ocean in months
its thursday
and im missing a lot right now
mostly the breeze
the salt
the water
and im not sure if that was supposed to be a metaphor for you
or not.
