Poem: Snake And Sister

She speaks with forked tongue

Like me

Or so they think….

Red reading organ licking life’s vital notes

My remarks seen as serpent stories

Eve, I stole the apple

And ate with hearty gusto

As I approached she leapt

Slanted snake eyes staring down my soul

Who are you wild woman walking among the decay?

Up grew from death

The bulbous fungi poison

I stopped

Her sinuous scales retreated now

But not before those piercing eyes burned a hole

The ancient grip

Locked we were

For an eternity

Snake and sister

As she slithered off
