The one that they present to you
With the tab after you’re finished

Elusive Annelid

I am a squiggly, slimy annelid.
I live my life above and underground.

This is my terrestrial element.
Here I’m safe and sound and I’m all alone
Morning mist entices my next ascent.
Here above I lie in grassy wetness.

[Hata Bildir]
