Throwing light into the corner

she is always hanging there
upside-down in the corner.

why am I afraid of this creepy little thing?
those eight skinny legs
are totally out-matched.

that angled posture
and the supernatural way she floats there…

she lives quietly in a corner of my studio
though occasionally goes missing
(I wonder where she is, as I glance up at the ceiling)

looking at her closely, I can’t help but make the “ewe” face

yet I want to approach her, get closer,
so I will stop being afraid of
this creepy little being.
