I saw the silver snail tracks
glittering in the sun
like iridescent fingerprints
pressed against the cracking pavement:
evidence of what they'd done.
Those slimy little trails
a crisscross map of the night before
when dewy soil
and shushing winds
comprised the party scene.
Slanting morning rays
tiptoed along their metallic threads,
left open for the world
to inspect and to conspire
about the midnight trek
of those tiny shelled-up slugs
