snake in the sequel

a sequel of sorts
to snake in the grass
snake-676335_960_720not all snakes
are dangerous
but human snakes
can be
snake-676335_960_720graceful
exotic
hateful
hypnotic
you won’t know
what kind
of snake
until he’s
right up in
your face
shoulda,
woulda,
didn’t,
damn,
ah well,
too late

      1. I just jumped over to read the prequel (at first I couldn’t tell that “snake in the grass” in this poem is a link). Great work, you’ll have to round it out with a third at some point. 🙂 You’re really capturing the experience of encountering such snakes, so much so my mind thinks back to my own encounters as I read these poems.
