Poems and Texts

from Snail Poems by Eric Sneathen


there’s some regret over here
and desire in the way
a snail takes up its meal,
separates its bread
softly scattering
its green crumbs
(it’s too much
for a snail) she’s in there
where i shake
to my heart
i don’t know why
the image gets failed so
brutally and un-
—it’s strange to remember
