Okay so it is a poem based on HT’s real life experience last night. She didn’t tell me about it, instead she wrote in on the back of a bill to remember it. Plus, if you thought you’d be reading a real ode… sorry.
Late at night from the corner of my eye I saw a white spider and it had to die.
I smacked it hard but it bounced away.
I settled back down, closed my eyes and felt it nipping at my thigh.
