Black and glossy dollop of sin
Frozen explosion of sticky tar
Red ominous assassin marking:
Timing every kill on your venter.
You lie still waiting suspended
Within your tangled web of deceit
Sensing movements unintended
A deadly acrobat on eight feet.
Stronger than steel your silken fibre
Your resolve persists stronger still
Leathered dominatrix whipping desire
How I’ve loved you and forever will!
Martyred my life as a sexual devour
Just for one octapodian embrace
An instinct drew me to you for Ours
Was I –
A target, a meal, a dupe, a disgrace?
Despite the neglect you showed me
I am in my eyes a hero
In the Order of Araneae
With a not-so-grieving widow.
