Sister Arachnid

Sister Arachnid
what was it he said
that tempted you to
feast on your lover

Sister Arachnid
was it something in bed?
You don’t have to say
but concerned in a way

for I am your brother

You sit in spirals of spinning
delicious morsels of your handiwork’s winning
what didn’t he know?
Was he too slow
that now he dangles hanging by a fine silken thread

Sister Arachnid
an empty spot is ever so sky blue
What did or didn’t he do?
What will *I* do
when I fall prey too?

Sister Arachnid
just give my mind some rest
please answer my inquest
Is love a gift
that I ought to shift
my goals from
and not be
so blessed?
