linyphiia triangularis*

by Cate Foster

your fatal mistake
was assuming I would
show pity when
feeling vulnerable

we don’t do that

uncertainty breeds defensiveness
attack me when I am
cold, naked, barely awake
and I merely make the
water scald and
rinse you down the drain

* the Money Spider, native to Great Britain
