soft bits of self

a fraction
of gossamer memory
draped across the ocean
to reflect
the substandardized ego
pulls tightly
the spider
with swollen abdomen
drips venom
on the incidental
into an atypical trap
of grainy
black and white images
that show a yesterday
that never quite
an occular manifestation
of optimal misrembrance
drawing the fangs
ever closer
to soft bits of self
