The Impermanence of Snake~by Ilsa Hummingbird



The Impermanence of Snake

A snake is not permanent
like all things, except in art
like the lions, ready to pounce
in that Rousseau picture
where Eve lies, decadent
I’ve called her Eve
Eve & the snake co-exist
they are unto each other
like the Buddha is unto God
a matter of opinion
to be fought & jostled over
as music plays
& an elephant raises
it’s trunk in song.
