snake

You, who are so close,
Speak from one thousand years ago.
Recall our shared rituals and signs,
Begin this cool uncoiling at my spine.
Now I shed my outward skin,
I am left bare animal.
Now I am just beautiful bone.
Eyes closed, waiting.
Mortal, calm.
But then, ignited by an ancient spark,
See how my eyes glow in the dark!
