Wolf spider

If they didn’t want us
to be scared of them
they shouldn’t have called them

wolf spiders

I know you can relate
as I sit here
stalked by an obstacle course
of overturned cups

each one harboring
a shadow

my tea is cold
and I am suspicious
and itchy

and then there is the one
that got away
feathery stain scuttling
under the couch

it was his lightness
that was the most harrowing
the way he seemed to crawl
without touching the ground

I can’t stop thinking about him
howling his revenge
in the dark.
