Was I

a great orange spider

in my wide web,
suspended between fronds

a planet God?
Did you, unkempt

one glistening morning
aching in your bathrobe,

drench me in poison?
Did I knit all of me at it all,

fall upside down from
my soaked and broken threads,

come down the stem?

  1. Wonderful imagery. I love the way you broke the poem up with the title being the first line. It makes the internet a co-conspirator in the down the stemming.
