Kid Snake

She knew two snake people
she see them in they black eye
frightening sight coal stone black
wanting to be lit, she supposed
waiting to be let free of this life
stay away, the eyes say
kill me fast, the eyes laugh
She and her twin with the toy
talk and laugh and ignore
the snake people
winding around them sweet
like to be as big as candy
like a mommy
or something sugar
