Atropos

-Atropos-
Little spider,
Web strider,
Deadly dread dancer,
Your fangs wider.

Hello dangler,
Wing wrangler,
You’re a skilled lancer,
Arachnid angler.

Quilled-quilt fighter,
Weaving writer,
Lure the prey, prancer,
Bitty biter.

I’ve learned from you,
Ghost guru,
Creeping, crawling cancer,
Blood-red tutu.

I’ve learned to eat
And to feast,
I’ve advanced care
To drain the red teat.

Death becomes you,
Fanged taboo,
You enhance her—
Life is death too.
