NaPoWriMo Day 27: Shorts

We’re packing and cleaning this weekend to get ready to move for May 1. As you can probably tell, I ran out of NaPoWriMo steam mid-month when we finalized the house purchase. This poem is for the spiders we’ve uprooted:

Spider Poem with Exclamation Mark

The spider draws
two unrelated points
together; a new, temporary
geography. In this space,
Life! In this space,
Death. The guy wire breaks,
the circus is over, the tent
blows away.
