02/05/07: Zero at the Bone

Emily Dickinson had an amazing turn of phrase! Here is a bit of a poem called "The Snake" (although I read that she never named her poetry, and elsewhere it's titled "A Narrow Fellow in the Grass"). Either way, I think we know what I'm saying...

Several of nature's people
I know, and they know me;
I feel for them a transport
Of cordiality;

But never met this fellow,
Attended or alone,
Without a tighter breathing,
And zero at the bone.
