A Poem From One of My Chapbooks


beware my friends

there are poisonous snakes

slithering in the green grass

we love to walk in green grass

we love to search for greener

pastures just beware of the snakes

smiling snakes who smile at you

friendly snakes who want to hug you loving snakes who want to kiss you

helpful snakes who want to help you

solve all your problems

snakes who smile and bare bloody fangs

snakes who hug and squeeze until your bones break

snakes who kiss and bite until the poison takes

snakes who help you feel comfortable

while they take your place

in your deathbed your eyes open

as you realize it is far too late

after you feel the horror spreading

from the terror of the deadly snakes
