The spider’s web
Quad Camping, West Central New Mexico Wilderness, July 2017
Of sticky strands
And prickly hooks
Of bloody bands

I began to read
The tragedy
Of love undone
So violently

I stopped before
I read the gore
The sappy core
The final score

My peace defend
T’was enough to know
What, why and when
The how? – Not now.
