Snail's Point of View

Written by Gail DeBole 0n April 30, 2013
Updated by Gail DeBole on February 2, 2015

Transit System
The underside of a gutter guard
Moved for mowing...
Destination - 7 feet away from home.
A lone snail hitches a ride.

Amusement Park Ride
Clinging to the garage door
As it moves upward.
Clinging to the garage door
As it moves downward.
A lone snail waits for a second ride.

Dangerous Adventure
Secretly hanging off the boy's pant leg.
It ends up in a heap of dirty clothing.
Targeted for the deadly washing machine.
A lone snail crawls away from a poisonous death.
