Clacking Back 

The morning speaks 
in cobblestone braille 
and snail trail goo. You

might think my toes 
would have a go at it 
all, but my fingers are 

what’s itchy. Twitchy 
with time and not enough 
time and rhyme that isn’t 

jiving. Arrival’s easy; it’s 
staying that’s a trick. And 
it’s click that makes her tick. 


Quickly, day 7.

    “cobblestone braille
    and snail trail goo. You” – great imagery, and such classic De rhythm and rhyming.

    I agree; Cobblestone Braille – wonderful image.
    There are some places in cities I live in that have some old cobblestones…
    If only they could be read, but then maybe the snails read them?

    Keep clacking.
