Free Verse: The Spider

The spider
on it’s web
does not scare me.

Nor does the dust filled web;
I say, but do not believe.

I accept,
the spider’s right to exist
in the same way
that the spider
accepts my own. Indifference,
unless our paths converge.

Outside; a web is welcome
for it belongs in nature.
Inside; perhaps
it may still belong;
but neither the web
nor the architect
are welcome.

Once seen,
wether in periphery
or with full attention
action must be taken.

the only course of action
and I shudder as I draw near
enough to knock you down
before casting you out.
