Premium Member Who Am I
I have a little sting saved up for you
Because I am not fond of your species.
Most arachnids aren’t.
But I do not have to stay an arachnid.
I can shapeshift into knotted cords with lead spikes.
I can be found in the desert

Was the purpose of your absence an attempt at causing me pain? 
That crippling feeling, a spider spinning its web inside my mind.

The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout.
Along came the rain and washed the spider out...
Silly spider, of course he got washed out -
so now that arachnid can just sit and pout!...Read More

Small Bier
A fly caught in a freeze frame
Paralysed by a spider
Clinging comatosely to a curtain
It was shaken free from its slumber
To be ambushed,where it fell,on the window ledge
An opportunistic spider,on the lookout for prey
Scuttling with instinctive purpose to pounce
Dragged to death
Into...Read More

Premium Member Refurbished Nursery Rhymes: Little Miss Muffett, don't mess with PMS
When a big hairy spider
Came and plopped down beside her
As Miss Muffett sat munchin'
A light, healthy luncheon,
She screamed, "Sir, naught could be ruder
Than an arachnid intruder!",
And proceeded to prove the mistake he had made.
'neath a teacup she trapped him,
With a...Read More

Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet 
drinking a mocha late, 
but when that old spider sat down beside her
she pulled out her Mace and let spray!

That arachnid took flight to her great delight 
having learned his lesson in spades.

Premium Member Third World
The rest of us
caught here
in the web
of a foreign arachnid

We prop up
his appendages
and force feed
his proboscis

Those of us
blinded here
by his pure
dark whiteness

Grope and slash
in the excrement
of his dying

In a world
good for others
they concentrate
us in harm

And our children
play in the backyard

A Talent Discovered
The pink haired,
queen of the runway,
couldn’t handle
spiders in her boudoir.

When flying arachnid’s
trapeze was disrupted
for the fourth time;
arachnid moved into her 
favorite hatbox and laid eggs.

Upon discovering the squatters, 
Pink hair’s scream and subsequent faint,
sent eggs flying everywhere.

When she came around,
she...Read More

Goddess of Wisdom
In the heavenly arena,
Weaver of skill 
Was believing
That none could match 
The beauty of her weaving.
But a young mortal maid, Arachne,
Showed weaving of matching beauty.
So enraged by this travesty
Of equally beautiful tapestry, 
Athena, no longer able to...Read More

A spider drank cider
A spider drank cider and was legless at breakfast

Golden Desert Light
Complete silence follows the ways of sand
At dawn the sky cracks open on the dunes
Golden desert light rises hot
Filled with pain along the ridge
By afternoon the world turns rusty brown
Dryness craws along with armored insects
Scorpions are perfect black with anger...Read More

Scarred streets
the streets are scarred for good and we know it
after the hits of untamed hearts
after this abstract damage of cyclic returnings

a sight of iron garden and crystal steam
where colour of poplars recalls
the moss in the...Read More

Premium Member Spiders - The Butterfly Style

They are arachnid
have two body parts
and eight legs
some have
some kill
humans but
most catch insects
in a web of silk

Change little but size
spiders build webs
folks fears them
they are
and some
are well known
most black widows
kill male when mating
