Of Love And Spiders

To show you how much I love you
I pull baby spiders from your hair

and you know how much I hate spiders
their beastly eyes look too deep into my soul

my jeans are shaking
and my genes are shaking

I try not to break off their legs
what good would they be

what good are they now
my brain is asking questions

my mind can never answer
when there’s not a single baby spider left

in your beautiful red hair
I realize love can make us all over-achieve.
