Spider, man

“If you want to live and thrive,
let the spider run alive.” (American Quaker saying)

this summer in the
dashboard crevices
of my truck
a spider has built
an encampment
each morning
newly spun gossamer
like 1970s string art
from radio to steering wheel
glove box to window crank
one morning it is
snow blown into the corner
of the windshield
with a finger i slice
the filament
yet overnight the
spider’s senses tingle
spinning efficient perfection

the switch flicks-
she is
an engineer

some spider
