My Pet Snail

June 26, 2013

I wonder what he is running from.
When slimy liquid drags behind
 I wonder if he resents himself.

I can’t get very far because
I was born small and with slime trails.
I know him and we are small.

I don’t have legs.
I slide on my belly and my insides jiggle.
I wonder if my insides have guts.
His insides are slime.

We leave sticky trails.
