Into the Attic


let's be clear

I am not a fan

of the attic

it's not the spiders

or cramped quarters

darkness no issue

either

but spiders lurk

in the mind

their bite like

the rolls of insulation

wariness of spun glass

clogging the lungs

scratching the eyes


to climb into the attic

is the join the venomous

grow your own fangs

and want to crawl back

towards the darkness


once you fully occupy

that uncomfortable space above

there is nothing left
