A Withdrawn Thickened Slug - Poem by umashankar manthravadi

a withdrawn thickened slug
trod upon by too many feet
to ever want to extend its
horns and resume the search
dehydrates
on the concrete path
its body fluids
a sticky dark patch
in the light
do not touch me

    nice clear picture (Report) Reply
