Symbiosis  (renamed from Sea of Grass)

He found a door
That wasn't  there
Vanished through
Into thin air
To find himself
In a pastoral scene
Acre on acre of
Waving  green
his way blocked
So he could not pass
By banks of signs
Keep off the grass

In the sky
Of azure blue
A Helicopter
Gunship flew
Spotlight fixed
On his head
Metallic voice howled
Stand still or be be dead
And from the grass
From way down root deep
Climbed yellow gas to
Send him to sleep

His final thoughts
As he slumped down
To lay supine
On the ground
grass was moving
Starting to flow
As it waved
To and fro
 He was  there
To meet their need
He felt small tendrils
Pierce to feed.

In very short time
Just a mound
Where he'd lain
On the ground
Just as though
He'd never been
On this deceptively
Peaceful scene
 Acres  and acres
Of whispering grass
The trap reset to await
A new victim to pass
