Snake in the grass

black cat with snake in mouth

all morning i have been researching phrases i know

but do not understand –

from passages in sacred texts to things my grammy said –

and then,


so swift is is reality and understanding

that sometimes it is hard to grasp,

and you need real life metaphor!


No treachery here, Virgil!

Beware of others interpreting your truth.


A snake in the grass may be food for thought –

or it may just be food.
