We Are Snails

we are snails 

we are snails

we slip on our slimy trails

to move forward

just for a moment

fast enough for us to wobble backwards a bit

we straighten up

gain composure and move along

like we have made some great feat

while we build up 

that slimy track again 

we repeat it over and over
getting somewhere?

very slowly
