Garden Snake

Garden Snake

When we were man and wife
we celebrated our anniversary once

by laying in the grass next to each other, happy to be simple and alive

The oak stood above us like our proud creator as if he himself had formed our love from the dust

But that snake, remember, that snake slid quietly down the trunk of the creator and made a straight path between us.

You said he was just a harmless little thing.
