eight diagrams – spider

the heat brings
clouds of gnats
a swarm descending
(patience)
a warm breeze
gently pushes
the hovering horde
the sunlight
in hazy beams
plays against the
swaying leaves
(a twinge
vibrations
dance
a blur
where one was a
struggling
little gnat
now a meal
gently wrapped
to be
liquefied
at leisure)
mindless wings
further
entangled
a feast of
excess
for the patient
hunter
sitting still
on the
signal line
swollen abdomen
an hourglass
in
crimson
she waits
watching
