The Intruder

The Intruder

A Poem by Siddartha Beth Pierce

Tangled teeth

wrapped around words

strung together

with spidered tongue

veins

dripping with eggs

in the sack

attacked

just now

by my shoe

the glue you made

now stuck to my feet

enduring

no more.

 

One said

once

beware the spider

aye, I say

Beware

of me

forever

the chore of

this house

upkeep.

Haha! This was a great intro to you. If all of your poems are this fun, I'm sure it'll be a pleasure reading them. I have to admit - I absolutely hate spiders; I'll scream like a girl if surprised by one.... Have fun spider smashing and doing chores - they both seem endless, do they not?

Haha! This is a quaint little poem either for the housekeeper or for the spider! I love the imagery and the way it unfolds into a fair warning to the spider! Excellent job!

Great write. Your words are short and potent. The first line grabbed me though it's only two words.

Intriguing blend of burnt intimacy, decadence, weariness w/the aftermath chore of it all. Nonetheless an elegant twining of lines redolent of lissome lovemaking remains. . .
