Turtle

Turtle

by Kay Ryan

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

Rated G, "Turtle" is appropriate for general audiences. We don't have any information about the turtle's social life, but she appears to be a single gal. Who knows, though—maybe she does get lonely. Is there an eHarmony for turtles?
