advice for a spider

Begin with a line.

Spin as though your life depends

on the day’s first ooze of silk.


Wait for an uplift.

Be patient.

Go with the drift.

Know that the sticking place will come to you.


Know too, this line will hold you as you dangle.

Trust that you will find a clever angle.


Up, down, across, repeat.

Again. Again.


So now you wait,

hungry for a revelation.

Any prey’s a good vibration.
