a minute to spare.

the dampiness of today makes me think of newts
tiny paddling legs and even tinier eyes
tiny pink branched gills
drawing a biochemical parallel to dextrans
and the complications of homopolysaccharide folding
chitin has beta linkages tooth bacteria has alpha
i think of being a newt
with a velvet underbelly
delicate flesh
swimming against the rippling of raindrops
towards the sweet decay of tree roots
seeking your sole comfort

with branching gills.
