disappearing garter snakes in the garden

two newborn garter snakes slither
like placeless rivers in concert
through the dancing delphiniums

they find their way–
God only knows how and to where–
through the foreboding snapdragons
   then
disappear into thin air
an alien abduction    maybe
but gone in any case

the rest of the day
   while not over
seems to limp    in the direction
of where the tiny snakes
exited the universe

  1. Thanks Aurora, Floots, Gautami, and Polona. I appreciate your comments. Yes, whimsy. Yes, snakes leaving the universe for snake nirvana, Yes to everything else. After all, it is Friday.
