Suction

A writhing snake
Bucks and quivers,
Thrilling bliss.

Red splashes
And orange streaks
Are its markings
Camouflage-
As it slithers into the incision
Stealthily, a clear, hungry belly.

Fluid slurped turbulently
Gushes through its coils
A hard greedy mouth
Becomes blocked by debris
Choking the hiss.

‘Suction please.’

Fabulous poem, aj. Thanks for sharing!

aj this is great! Really powerful words you used that really capture your imagination and demand your attention. I agree with Anna, it's wonderful to see that people can analyse what can sometimes be a rather boring episode in theatre and transform it into art.
