Crocodile

that strange cousin
an ancient family resemblance
asking when did you get so beautiful?

This word has been lying around for a while now.


 

Commentary: The word “crocodile” was literally laying around on my desk. I don’t recall why I wrote it down to begin with, but after looking at it for days or weeks or however long, it turned into a short poem. I guess you could say I have a meaningful relationship with alligators (it’s a Louisiana thing), but I don’t really trust crocodiles.

I'm not interesting or important, and neither are you.
