Snake in the Grass, Snake in the Road


Snake in the grass...


crosses the road, looking cross.


Sees me,


tastes the air,

...and leaves the area.


'Bye snake!

(I'm wondering if he was heading for the chicken house again. This morning we were missing a few eggs. Hmmm. Last time he showed up, Larry dowsed him with a bucket of cold water. Might be time for another bath.)
I just call these 6-footers black snakes. Do they have another, more specific name? I can't recall ever hearing one.
