A large, allegedly evolved primate,
he passed through an exterior door
of his abode, intending to gather
a newspaper on the stoop (this
was in the last days of print-culture),
and he was caught in a spider’s web.
Webbing on his face, he looked
at the fat brown spider as it danced
like a portly Vaudevillian on its
filament, and he laughed.
