Eastern Worm Snake

(Carphophis amoenus amoenus)

Eastern Worm Snake likes my hat

It likes my hat

Eastern Worm Snake in hand

Shaking Hands

Eastern worm snake head

It says “Hi”

The Judge

August 24, 2009

If you have read

About the Defendant

Then you know

Of the White Bear


He is my

Judge, Jury, & Executioner

Never haunting

Only condemning


Though years pass

Between sentences

Always do I hear

the clap of the clawed gavel


Rending my Fate


Now again

I stand before him

Not once

But twice


I am

To old to Fear

To tired for Angst

Poised in Trepidation


In dream I walk

Through a forest glorious

Finding upon a turn

The Demon of the Scale


He feasts

But not on me

I may pass

Unchallenged


Into a field of Light


In a dream I stand

Inside a room

Before a door

I open


Egress blocked

Progress halted

Crowding me

White Bear Cubs


They sought me

Found me

Together we are

Peaceful


I have sought Balance

Have I found it?
