in the shower, a daddy long leg
is sure to appear,
I wait till he has found his corner cover
before starting the water.
in late fall the garden is replete
with webs, they shimmer
with raindrops, fatten as their
it’s a little exasperating when their
webs cover every avenue around the house,
so you must train your spiders well.
my favorite is springtime when the
baby spiders amass on the deck or
some batch of wood, buzzing back and
forth with anticipation of busting out,
like Oklahoma homesteaders in the ‘30s.
