Cobwebs: a poem

sandra-wattad-489428-unsplashthe delicate cobwebs that we steal

from enraged spiders

that we tear apart

with uncut fingernails

the shadows of mountains

carved, chiseled, sandpapered

the rays of light

that we keep refracting

hem the edges

with thread that doesn’t match the cloth

all filtered into incomprehensible strings of words

that we call poetry.
