Slug

Slug (2/19)

Trails on the floor in the morning - never a body in sight
All hail the banana slug movement at night!

In my hand - looks like a squat of bird poo
Dark brown - wet - nothing at all like a spent bullet

With salt they look like shitake mushrooms in a wok
A pressed bullet is a watch battery - a nickel

A lifeless thing that shines - an eye in sunset
