A Spider and I in my Basement
from the ceiling
legs jazzy with descent
its invisible thread
of web extending
I watch because I’m afraid
also open to accepting
the spider’s place in our home
I don’t want to kill it & that
feels good in a weird way
lands gracefully on the floor
its invisible web still invisible
hope clinging to dust mites
This spider is still
we are spaghetti-western-stand-off
I make the first move
slide my back against the wall
side-step past the spider
not wanting to disturb
its traveling accomplishment
not wanting to feel the stick
of web on my face
even if that’s what
hope feels like
