An arachnid’s meal


Poets are like woodlice
Ruminating away at life!
What they build is a place
For air; that abridged space
Multifaceted
For a spider's snare!

Poets are like damselflies’
Flitting here - then there!
The world is dammed,
Petrified into, living stone.
The only thing left, now, is
His, words an arachnid’s meal.

Every bone sucked morrow
Worn out cartilage!
Is left out here on display,
Every mouth licked morsel.
With its 90° degree—death
Kill swing, cogitates its end.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
