Spider in Times Square | By Samuel Strathman

A shadow descends

toward the arachnid

like a derailed


The crawler shivers

in waves, a parted


Heavy lies the anvil,

a chasm made

with the force

of a hundred

thousand windchimes.

When the dust

settles, Times Square

is a swimming pool,

moats spanning for days.


Samuel Strathman is a poet, author, educator, and co-editor at Cypress: A Literary Journal.
