If snails could speak

imagine the ponderous space

between utterings

slow soundings of kindness

freed from syllables


their headpieces

tasting wind

so near the earth


following no path,

leaving shiny trails


in their own view


carrying home

as a natural weight



propelled by ground


their words

in shapes

of silence.
