Halloween Spider

27 comments

[NOTE: This poem and this posting is just designed for some innocent, scary, Halloween fun. It is not meant to reinforce anyone’s hatred of spiders. When i see a spider in the house, i gently grab it in a soft Kleenex and subsequently release it (gently) out-of-doors. Spiders are generally harmless, are great pest removers, and can be admired for their own intrinsic beauty; humans probably look ugly to a lot of perceptive animals!]

**************************************************************

The enchanted, having ranted, spidery witch of

darkest, dreary goblin

sobbin’

in that convulsive, soggy, wriggly kind of way

within a musty, murky midnight

that stealthily sneaks into your house perceiving

your body’s warm, sleeping unconsciousness

unaware of the overhanging, hungry, evolved fangs of natural

selection (of which you are soon to be a part)

Dark, dark world where vibrations are a dead giveaway

and tossings and turnings in bed (for comfort) are incantations

luring the eight-legged spinstress whose

shadow unfolds into one’s somnolence

She skirts across further up the wall to the

dreamceiling where, suspended, she

swings above you

pitch dark pendant-like

eloquently poised

descending

descending

your breathing calls her

descending

descending

she lowers

descending

descending

to become one with you forever

Then the wolf showed his teeth and said:

“Then I’ll huff,
and I’ll puff,
and I’ll blow your house down.”

“Well, then please use mouthwash,” said the three little pigs, “Your breath is strong enough to kill an elephant.”
