a spider set up shop

a spider set up shop
by the kitchen door
and laid out her wares
of lace and fluff and more

when I passed by her table 
she hid within her place
I marvelled at the skill
implicit in her lace

if left to her trade
she'd slip out to net
the feeble flies on landing
on sunny day or wet

least you think this morbid
she cleared the corner where
the flies were apt to rest
but never depart from there
