Snails


Snails
Groove on rain
& lettuce sandwiches ...
     if God
     was a lettuce sandwich
snails would groove on God
     (also)
but as he is not
     or has never been remarked on as being
a lettuce sandwich
snails
groove on rain instead
     (and Dylan)
     (of course)

The three-ton slug
     grooves also on rain;
     it, too,
     would groove on Dylan -
but there are such problems
getting earphones to fit.
