POEM: The Coiled Serpent

serpent

A coiled serpent

Always poised to strike –

Isn’t that what we all seek to embody?

I won’t slough off these scales

In front of you

Just yet

The potential of poison

Always on the verge

Of poisoning your potential

Just cuddle this scorpion

And see if he doesn’t cuddle you right back
