I walked along the bracket of the beach with a pocketful of salt that the sea no longer wanted. I had originally intended on returning it (one day), I didn't mean to keep it. Technically, because it wasn't mine, I stole that salt. I sifted the crystals out of the water and rolled them between my fingers until they were eroded smooth by the ridges in my fingerprint. Fingerprints embedded in the evidence. Salt embedded in my identity.

They never caught me. I was never reprimanded for stealing from the earth. I should have been. I should have been.

Short, but thought-evoking. There are so many things we steel from the earth that we are never reprimanded for, but maybe should be.
