Snakebite

The serpent has mingled with my blood

As she devours me,

I become her lover

Half lidded eyes

closed with numbness

My body tingles

from her touch

She has me paralyzed

She has left me speechless

Her poison

runs through my veins

I can feel her all over my body

She has become I

And I she

I can feel myself

becoming dead

yet alive

Becoming, Soil, water and sky

All things and none

My soon to be widow

lays across my bed

And Weeping Mary, weeps

As I  leave her

for another lover

I am afraid to close my eyes

19 hours in the ER, 3 days in the hospital, 25 vials of anti- venin,  2 1/2 months recovery. Getting your hand out of the way in time……Priceless.  Kids don’t try this at home, we are professionals.

  1. THAT is scary! And my minds eye (from your other writings of her) see’s Mary having gone sword to sword with the “other” lover.

  2. Repeat – THAT is scary!
