Taxidermy

 
 
Fifteen kinds in amazing binds me to the days that I took part in
when life was just the interval of the plays that we all played in.
 
there’s a burn rate
a candle light
a dinner date
and I am late
for all of it.
 
feed me
let the World wide web
(that spider of deceit)
call me up and say
we
need you
 
I’m amazing fifteen ways
and no spider ever says
that.
