A warm morning. Over by the well, garter snakes thread themselves into a throbbing knot. Some animal starts bumping under the house.


  1. Sorry, I don’t like snakes. I’m glad they are near your porch not mine!

    1. Considering where you live, I imagine it’s not a good idea to cultivate too great a fondness for snakes.

  2. I feel the presence of an animal bumping under the house more keenly every day.
