arachnid company

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

prey diminishes.


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.
