tribute # 53 - snapper

the snapping turtle
laid her eggs in our
construction sand

for sacred

until fox
den pups
small treats

our shovelling
resumed what's
after all
the basking, nothing

mud-caked small dinosaur
(dad said decades before)
could bite thru fingers

I always thought they looked cute. Then again, looks can be deceiving, especially proven by the guy having his finger sewn back into form. ;)

Can't get the line "cat sex isn't gentle. how does consent work?" (from the other poem) out of my head. (grin) Brings back memories of hearing blood-curdling screams from rooftops. Cheers.
