White cards,

full of breath

a photo –

pristine,

immaculate –

of a snake.

Eastern garter.

Scaled, sleek.

Striped or

ringed;

patterned or

plain.

Rat.

Corn.

A slideshow

of snakes,

one after

another.

Reviled or

revered.

Poisonous

& not.

Earth.

Water.

Pine.

Coiled &

sinuous.

Undulating.

Sidewinding.

Concertina.

Rectilinear.

King.

Queen.

Copper.

Transition.

Intuition.

The deep

unconcious.

The slideshow

continues.

Snake after

snake after

snake.

  1. I forget what year you were born…

    But, this makes me think of:
    A) a parade of past lives or parallel world identities.
    B) a self-examination of threats in your life, sorting out the true terrors from the sensual/delightful surprises. Perhaps, one such instance came into focus recently and has made you reflect on past encounters.
    C) a police line-up; maybe you are trying to find the creature that matches a particular feeling high on your stack of current concerns or interests. What is the true nature of this person you just met or remember meeting long ago and has now resurfaced.

    Nif-teresting way of using singular words like a slideshow.
