Beautiful Snail

FullSizeRender

Expressed in whorls
And soft tissue encased

And the fluid foot
In muscular reach,
Elegant as any
So long limbed
And herbivorous.

And what a beautiful
Tactile face
To sense
Moisture’s
Slick vehicle
And slide in silver grace:

The known world tasted
Through a moving salivation.
