Bay View Spiders

Spider Island

Late autumn blisters yellow and black,
as garden spiders weave silver webs
linked to brown field grass.

Spiders hang plumb-like from strands.
We boys trap them in jars and take them
to Spider Island.

Some fall in the water,
drown in a futile clutching. Some spin
webs in private frenzy. Some wait patiently
for the familiar tug in its web.

Bay View Spiders | It’s about the boy’s autumn excursions in the fields and around his boyhood world. Spiders were a fascination.
