wrapt in the silk of a thousand worms,
mixing with the rain
and the earth and the air,
melting like ice cream

make finger-shadows
and see them dance
on the surface of the water
during lightning.

what am I?
snail tracked and painted myrmidon,
striped with the best of the barber poles,
suckled as a final Lemonhead.
death comes as a white hat.
