god, an astronaut and a spider spinning into forever

spent an hour
watching
a tiny spider
weave
a massive web
invisible
except for
errant rays
of light
streaming
from behind
the ever present
gray blanket
a flurry
of careful
instinctual
choreography
hypnotizing
in the steady
chaotic order.

lost in the
details
umable to see
the entire
work of art
incapable of
understanding
the finer
inner workings
as it rested
on the one
single thread
that lets it
monitor
the whole web.

a god
watching
as an
astronaut
spins off
into
oblivion
a speck
in the great
cosmic order
to all
except for
itself.

there are
so many
centers
of the universe
it becomes
hard to
differentiate
one from
another.
