So pretty / spider city

I live in spider city

land of grey webs

spindly legs

and glitter

moving delicately

staking territory

gossamer strands


invisible lands

my octo-eyes


the corners

of my fortress

don’t look up or

disturb me

tick, tick, tock

taking stock

my demesne

well-lit or gloomy

silvery womb

my children


near invisible


white walls


silken skyscrapers

and exquisite

sprung floors
