my lover is loyal to black widow spiders
he makes things that slip through our fingers
it hurts, a gift he makes
we can’t see or touch or eat
he’s an old-fashioned man
his purity is out of date
he sits quietly to wait
for music tonight
he’s afraid to let us know him
he thinks we’ll wake up broken
when we see who is
a patient man
a candle and a pencil, it’s a vigil
he’s out of date, a waiting man
my lover is loyal
the spider is home tonight
