SPIDER IN THE SINK
(10/8/15)


I turn on
the bathroom
light

reach to open
the hot water

see a web
suspended beneath
the faucet

the offending
arachnid
anchored
in the center

I hesitate

actually considering
an attempt
to move it outdoors
at this early
AM hour

but I need
to get
ready for work
so unleash
the flow

flushing
the entire works
down
the
drain

I feel bad

I'm not necessarily
a fan
of spiders

but not a fan
of unnecessary death
either

oh well

that type
of genetic tangent
probably shouldn't
be encouraged
anyway

natural selection
is a bitch

I continue
my preparations

awaiting
my own flood

the inevitable
flush
