running into spider webs

the 8 legged architects have noticed my daily route
laying thin wires of silk to disrupt my to-the-beat-of-the-drum gait
what are their plans for the city?
someday they’ll construct traps for all of us
as we lay in our beds trapped with another insect who feeds off of us
they will be hard at work
strengthening their webs to withhold our force and weight
we’ll be reduced to mannequins
as they crawl into our orifices
laying their prosperity in our hearts
they’ll declare
victory over the ones who once killed us constantly
when all we were trying to do was
remind them that we’re here for them
on their daily routes
