religion in the bathtub

5 Nov

i let spiders weave away in corners
or dangle down from the ceiling in mid construction
looking like air lift rescue missions.
i watched one this morning as
it struggled to escape the gush from the bathtub’s spout;
its tentacles scratching at the tub wall for leverage
but always slipping back to the bottom
and eventually
sucked down the drain,
but what a fighting finish.
