belly side up

The toad
I slipped on
I didn’t kiss
it didn’t turn
into a prince
my foot
bare on the
belly side up
he foamed
his last pains
In the rains
of Nayarit
I ran down
stream to
house of bricks
I hit the mud
with my face
and saw it
my hearts fate
flashed before
me too early
to understand
so I loved
him anyway
