Spider Nut – Poetry

Licorice legs
and a walnut shell.
You could be a crab,
tired of the grainy shore,
the glucose whirl of a gluey sea.

Spider Nut, a Poem from Landscapes and Hearts by K. S. Moore.

Spider Nut, a Poem for Halloween

So that’s my best and scariest spider poem and I hate to tell you, it’s inspired by a real life creature who lived over the front door of my house. Happily, I’m referring to my old house, not my current residence.
