Snail Tree

In mud, snail tree, one eye, by creek.

Legs white, shadow fawn, wet jeans, leaf sky.

During day, flies land, suck hoof, horse’s ear.

Mud pigs, daddy long-long legs, and even bobcat’s purr.

In tree, tiger climb, breathe air, cry trying.

Snail tree, moss shell, many moons old.

In stream, cold creek, dog toes, sleeping sand.

In woods, keep time, slow moving snail tree.
