Webs and Nests

Too alone

a phrase phonetically self-ironic

a phenomenon whereby one is stuck

within a web of thoughts,

like a trapped fly

perishing, agonizingly slowly

in trepidation, waiting, waiting…

yet still not devoured;

the psychological torture!

The season, period must end

a small aperture,

causing the diffraction of waves,


Connectivity. Not so alone.

Escape in blue feathers:

community, communication, commuting

to strange places

inside the nests atop others’ heads

like tangled webs;

spun in the home of an avian

by arachnids

some of whom

are also too alone.
