Are scarier than jumping goats
They are armed by silence
And aided by care
Let all heads be still in listening
Do snails have noisy footsteps?
Do they have loud voices to call for alertness?
Don’t they have such cool touches?
Ones to make fantasies real?
Like shadows they penetrate
Their shapes and sizes aided and abetted by guard let-downs
Human snails are lions in their target areas
Human goats, toothless dogs
