Anti-head of the Anti-body

Anti-head of the Anti-body

​As the serpent coils around the body,
it dare not expose its head
to the defender’s.

When the wrestling has ended,
and the serpent constricts
to immobilize and suffocate
the body of the prey,
only then does it open its jaws.

Only then is it vulnerable to the fatal blow
from above that will strike
it down into that pit
from where it will never again return.
