Alligator in My Neighborhood

I am a poet, and a music composer. I confess. Artists like me are not known for adventure or taking risk. I like to be in the safe environment of my bedroom, with a notebook, and pen, and write poetry; or in my studio creating music.
But when I went for a walk in Dallas, and saw this alligator nest to my feet, surprisingly I did not run or scream. Instead, the brave component of my soul directed me to take out my smartphone and take a picture.
I confess. After I reached my home, after taking the picture, I started shaking for quite some time.
