Slug Trail

Slug Trail

I was walking along today

Quite consumed with myself

My needs, my wants, my lists

As I stepped along

Almost oblivious to all

I saw a shining random chaos

Atop the beige-white sidewalks

Serpentine, candescent

Reflecting the sunlight from above

In no inapparent apparition

This glowing wandered everywhere

Fantastic

Otherworldly

Unending, eternal

Beautiful

As I got outside of my little world

And entered the reality of this one around me

I realized the snails had been out for a walk

They, instead of being so self-consumed,

They left a little of themselves behind

A little of themselves to be a marvel

Or to simply be stepped over, ignored

Yet either way

Still, in the process

They created a wonder

And so can you and I
