Uh, a poem about snakes. My only poem about snakes, actually. Well, isn't that good?

I see winding beauty
Twisting lustre, of the menacing kind
I hear hastened rustling
And a provoking sizzle, just for a moment -
Just for heartbeat

It was just a pausing inquiry
Unanswered
It was just soundless aggression
Unfelt
A passing invisible

To glide gracefully so
To regard calmly so
To feel sensibly so
Wonderfully unsighted, unheard
Rather understated, unwanted
