the snake


sometimes
i feel like i want to shed off
all my skin
and molt like a snake
perhaps
to feel what the snake
does

one time there was
a snake under my
bed

it was helpless
as it was molting
i could not
bite

i did not touch
it
i did not mind
it

perhaps
it is the same reason
why people
in the house
too does not mind
me
and never for once
ever touch
me

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
