Crocodiles by A.J. Huffman

Crocodiles backup2

At first it could be any shore.
Rocky
and a little dark maybe,
but still intriguing.
Then a flash of green
throws your eyes off center.
Then another.
Until the ground you were about to walk
is walking for you.
Is waiting for you.
With a million teeth
hidden
in a permanent smile.

  1. Brings back memories of looking through a window at the Stanley Park Zoo and looking right into a crocodile/alligator eye. Scared the primate out of me. I was maybe six.
