The Spider

on my brim
dons tangible markings.
Crafted genes engage
to warn iconic
of principled
death.

She measures
her tacky line, loping
anchors across
waxen badges
encrusted with
doubt.

I don’t fear
the web she spins
above my cerebellum
since due warning
of predatory intent
gleans.

    This poem is really neat. The descriptive words are excellent! I read a comment of yours today....not sure if I have read your poems before? This poem didn't even have one comment? Chris.
