First steps a doozy


Gravity swells and rears its fearsome head
here in the unmoored hours before dawn
a sea monster of such vast proportion
asleep, submerged but for this sweeping bite
of scaly nape.  A ginger probe with one 
half blind toe, reassuring beyond all
reason.  Blithe as a tick on the hind end
of a surly cur I set off searching
for the mornings  first cup of muddy blood
a staggering baby, my rendezvous
with immutable law fast approaching.
