Wriggle Skyward

Snail envy isn't so much a longing for the world to slow,
As a desire to shell swap.
Slug-like, the squirmy-wormy wriggle carries upon itself
Home, and burden, and cave
Retreating at will.

What terror a shell game would be to it!
Havoc played with all of its Comfort,
Though dragging it along as
Care and Cure.

Imagine the wriggle suddenly popping out wings, instead,
Metamorphosizing mouth imploding of a sudden,
And with a small "o" of surprise,
"Cut away!"
