The reason we’re scared of spiders

I watch out our front window
as the spider darts across his feathery web
the fly pinned

it is the silence of it all
that terrifies me

and I realize this is why we panic
around these tiny beasts

we need our villains to explain themselves
to roar or hiss at least
and to see
as they feast
the look on their terrible face.
