Encounter


We both stopped
Heart dropping
Silent

I was near the house
The snake
Next to
The old garage

Him
Straining hard
To hear
Me

I not breathing
Saying to self
"Don't be frightened"

With no sound
Next to us
I said to self, "Don't move!"

Did it move
Like a deer?
He rose from the garage
And slithered off
