Copperhead

Rating: 3.1
coiled
by the lake
bronzed in
layers of sun

better not strike
back away - slowly

not to surprise
The Beatles
Let It Be
Mother Mary

no enemy to me
or I to it
once a hit

in McKee, Kentucky

This is a delightful 'less is more' piece Ben. I'm amazed I'm the first to comment. Love the way you've captured the revulsion-attraction of your beautiful copperhead and your use of the Beetles titles works a treat for me. love, Allie xxxx
