Concrete Spider - Poem by Annabel Cruz

Up, up
The smooth and glassy surface of my shower
He crawled
His delicate spindly legs glued, as if by magic
To the slippery wall
Navigating rivers and waterfalls most blissfully
Until a random
splash of water washed him down





Into a huddled mass
Of tangled legs
Twitching, twitching
On the shower floor

    People are so taken aback by a spider, anywhere near them...and you wrote a poem to do it justice.

    I too love shape poetry. To off-set the lines perhaps one could use.~`. Just a thought, even without it this is good.
