Arachnids

A Poem by Manda A.
"

Creatures taking on two human forms. May 2007

"

The full moon's on its way
Vibrations I'd expected are not
I'm carrying excess weight and drowning in red
A dream is a dream
Is a dream.
My Achilles heel broke
But your pitch-black orbs, gritted teeth
Fisted pinching pedipalps
Have laid an egg inside of me
I'll try to scratch the itch, but I know it

Just
          won't
                      hatch.


Ha-tsu
Ludvico, I thank you
The technique holds promise
But I've failed, not reformed
Violated, mosquito vampire
Anticipate the day of the wire, scrape my growths
Sleep it off, forget it all
It really never happened
Mortal Kombat, I'll be kicking your a*s
All the kids are home, there's mouths to be fed
Later than sooner I'll see you crawl
And hitch a ride
On my back as I climb
