found a snail shell
in the mud
at the Michigan Renaissance Festival.

cleaned it off
took it home
I used to collect rocks as a child.

a month goes by
it sits on my desk
and then I bought a decorative gourd.

back from class
i see the shell
has climbed to the top of the gourd.

took it off
kindof freaked,
IT HAPPENED AGAIN THE NEXT DAY.
And again the next day,
and again the next day IT JUST KEEPS HAPPENING.

Holy crap.
It's alive.
I named him Spanky.
