Important: Please Read-
the paper this headline was printed on
referred to an event
that happened in 2006.
I’d never read it.
Do I read it now,
in case it’s still important?

Or do I let it go and trust
that whatever was apparently
not all that important in 2006
will still not be all that important today?
Or tomorrow?

But what if it is?
I’m assuming the information
was related to the event-
but you know what they say
about assumptions-
no, neither do I,
I skipped that paper too.
But it may have been important.

Corner Spider


If Patience is a virtue,
then my corner spider is a Saint.
She’s sitting there right now
in her love-spun web,
waiting for a fly,
waiting for her egg sack
to produce spider babies,
waiting for the world to go by her
without judging or caring,
just sitting and contemplating
the countless rhythms of-
oh.
The cat just ate her.

Well.
So much for patience.
