2017 Poetry Marathon, Hour Nine: Apologies to the spider I flushed down the toilet in a wadded-up tissue

I would normally have scooped you up in a glass
and taken you outside
but you did a Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible
and came down from the ceiling
to right in front of my face
bringing the fight to me

This I cannot abide
