Inside the Vacuum Cleaner Bag

The spider squats.
Some cyclonic wind has sucked it
from sunshine and buzzy flies,
greedy feasts and blood fizz,
to shadows and dust mites.
So it spins its web and waits, egg sacs quivering.
Its young shall feast on human flesh.

You have to change the bag some day.

    1. I hate spiders – and fear them – but I've never understood the whole suck 'em up with a vacuum cleaner. Then I'm just towing them behind me as I push the vacuum around. Despite the courage it takes, I'd rather swat and be done … or sometimes, squirt though bug spray smells nasty.

      Thanks for reading!
