Snake Poem

by Liminality

The snake emerges

fully grown

from the egg,

the fake rattle-tail falls off.

It makes

the drone of a drum,

it takes

away the distance.

Reptile grooving

on the move

the feeling is

all that you want

you shed your skin

and wrap us all within.

The python eats the sun.

Nice rhythm poem! Like a snake.I don’t fear snakes lol.I have characters based on them.But thanks for the warning :D. I wonder what song it’s based on.When I first read this,I thought that it was about love.Now I think this might be just a trap.The kind of song sung to lure people to their very doom.Well,I hope that you will have a lovely,snake-free day and night.

Thanks for the review! It was actually just an impressionistic piece, though I suppose snakes do have an association with the themes you mentioned.

Have you met a cow or another large animal?
