how can i not think of that wolf spider
who always rebuilds in the same
exact
spot
from the right corner beneath the awning
to the left side along the house

how can i not think of why he’s so
steadfast
in his design
both to stay put
and to create the perfect trap

how i envy that wolf spider
whose only purpose is to
make a home
worthy of visitors
determined to make his hearth
a haunt for the transient
as they migrate
passing
they become enticed by the beauty and
intricate symmentrical outlines of unassuming silk

how he
entangles them (how i’m in awe
dead in their journey tracks
how he (how i’m struck
decides which ones he needs
and allows them a freedom to bounce
it is a false feeling
to bounce, your feel should lift off
within his entrapment of being stuck
to be playful and not to get unstuck

how can i not think of why he’s so
steadfast
singlemindedfocused
afterall
his only purpose
in his mind
is to build the most beautiful, alluring
TRAP
don’t be anxious wolfie, let him play
allthewhile you wait
wait to

<STRIKE>
