snakes at the billabong

the billabong seems a perfect snake place
no sooner I thought as an eastern brown
the second most dangerous snake
passed me by with it's musky odour

on my second return, trod almost on a red belly black
it slithered away from me as I fled at an obtuse angle
to it's vector sine wave mapping of the landscape
a distinct fishy smell, that's how I knew
