In my headlights,
against the garage,
you were resting,
a black-orange drop.

I retrieved a broom.
Spied your gauzed eggs
in overhead silk.
The first to be removed.

You did not respond
as your unborn were broken,
swept up by corn bristles,
killed there on the walk.

There was no delight
in what came next.
I respect your end --
your fierce, final movements.

See what I'll be up to on Saturday: www.bubastis.com/funeral

Yes. They're fascinating creatures. Too bad they're poisonous and living below the house.

Thank God, I despise the damn things myself . . .
and feel no pity in squishing
them to their final breath
*smile*
