basements are good to be 6 feet under,
where spiders are perfect in their
calm, cool and deliberate creations.
makes it striking when one
descends its own thread so fast,
the fall is a snippet of secret revealed.
i feel embarrassed for the spider;
suddenly so human in its stumble.
i remain calm, cool and deliberate
so as not to disturb the spider,
new creations no doubt forthcoming.
