As it was…

As it was with warriors of old –
slaughtering wild beasts
for their wives & children,
to sustain them
& prove themselves –

so it is with you;
carrying the corpses of spiders
on the soles of your feet,
in sacrifice to me
& my phobia.

Silk Web

Through the night
a mastered web
of silk so finely spun
catches dewdrops
as they fall
to shine in morning sun.
