Spider

Sitting silently, the spider sees
the warping weft, the weaving woof-
a living larder leaking life.
Eight eyes to attend with
and long legs to loop the
innocent insect, impotent idol.
Certain sacrifice, sure, slow,
entwining, enshrining, embalming. Eating.
The all seeing spider
silently sanctifies, silently sits.
