with age, new and old

with age, new and old
aches come for you in the middle
of the night. like a
hatchling marine iguana
versus racer snakes
at feeding
time, you realize the
carelessness of
tuning into another
episode of planet earth ii

there is a version

there is a version
of being cornered
that looks like letting
your hair down
.
it comes
with basic
squirming, a bit
of flailing, and
finally, a slow
slide into the
arctic waters –
you’ve
seen it. it’s
the one where they
cut to the scene of
a lone ice floe
bobbing for balance
while the kill has
just begun
