arachnophobia


a bite you pretended not to notice
an angry blister of words
a rash of accusations
an itch for something you can’t have

you’ve said her name eight times in the last ten minutes

a word of caution to ward against poison:

don’t feel sorry for the widowed spiders.

they’re alone for a reason.

One thought on “arachnophobia

  1. That’s a terrific poem, and I appreciate the playful spirit with which you composed all the words. Seldom do I have sympathy for spiders.
