The snake slithers
the lizard snakes
into the thatch, cracks
and brush
This fear of us

We only want to play

Instinct. 100% Right.
I meant it when I wrote that the Cowgirl has squirmed. Not to offend anyone's sensibilities, but I have done it, and do not regret it. I had to move my life further. I have gotten a feedback calling me a snake, but I said - what does that matter to you? it doesn't hurt you, so don't complain.

You are so intuitive in this little poem. Every word of it-

creepy friends
Tori & Felicia,

My current abode includes Black Widow spiders on the outside of the house. There is one I consider to be a sort of pet.

Last night I talked to a 'possum in the back yard.

Good to hear from you both.

I love your response. It is so positive, wholesome, and at peace with your environment that - it makes me reread Thoreau's "Walden," namely his cute and wacky experiences with loons, field mice, and ants around his hut.
Maybe your next oeuvre will be "Suisun?" Non?
