How swimming in the ocean leaves a pretzel taste on the lips

The feeling when

You’ve got back from the beach—
shook out the sand
donned fresh togs.

Open the window, or maybe
the air conditioner.

Nothing left.
All’s as it was before the beach
Save that pretzel taste on your lips
and a fine tiredness—

that welcome, long lost fatigue
peculiar to beach days.

Say some words!
