WRITING IS...

Writing
is for
man what the
sunlit silver mucus trail
is for snails and slugs
in the garden of life; writing
is for man what the web is
for spiders supping on fleshy fruit from the
tree of life; writing is for man what streams
of cat spray are-- to fellow felines-- on stalks of
green spring grass; writing is to man what scents
of dog urine are on newly painted fire
hydrants and gnarled tree trunks: Abstract signatures
inscribed in each specie's own unique
language and ink proclaiming: I
am here, this is
my mark, and
I am
wonderful!
