Catch Some Wide Eye

The Itsy Bitsy


he works it slow
hobbling across a white expanse
seven little legs coordinating
in no orderly fashion
as he moves across space
leg number eight stretches high
like a lone antenna
somehow snapped the wrong way
yet not severed
forcing him to carry the weight
the way people carry broken hearts

  1. Oooooh. Very vivid and visceral. Fantastic writing.

  2. this is upsetting. I kind of dig spiders.
    well, small ones, anyway.

      I like spiders, too. Anything that eats mosquitos is my friend. I was very perplexed when I found him. I wonder what possibly could have done that to his leg. He stumbled around like he was drunk since his balance was off. 😦

  3. Enjoyed it, especially the last two lines.
