Alone and inconvenienced

It’s ModPo season again! Here’s my own latest ‘inspired’ poem…

 

Alone and inconvenienced

by spider why incline

an open invitation there

all other thoughts aside.

 

I should have been more cautious

and not looked him in the eye

for there he took his liberty

and over-ran my mind.

 

I wish I had a little book

to browse behind this screen,

to distract among its’ pages

– oui – then adrift more narrowly.

 

Now time is of the essence

though the spider’s in no rush

– attending to this workmanship –

we need a little hush.

 

The hands of time are crossed again

the thresh-hold is traversed

there is no stamp of un approval

yet the spider’s un perturbed.

 

Non! Sense has its’ own reason

does us no good wondering why

we cannot find all answers here

– quite – oft yet spider pries.

 

I wonder what he’s thinking

he looks as though he reads my mind

I wish he’d be skadaddling

For this territory is mine!
