The spider weaves its deadly web

His work he must perform

For he was born with silken thread

A gift of entrapment

To his lonely bed.

He lies there waiting

Anticipating you

As you fly around

Excited by the sound

Emitting from his web

A moment you will dread

From the time he placed

The pillow to your head

I really like this piece...the spider on the web...I like that seems so simple yet there appears to be so much in here...for me...I feel that the work he must perform is actually his art...or poetry...weaving the words....and spreading them out...and he hangs onto them and waits for You to join him in his entrapment to them...he was born with this...he is one with it.... just as You soon will be...he calls to you with his lyrical verse....and waits for you to come...he needs you he can feed on survive...and you fly into it...almost by accident...and he takes you in...and spins you up before there is anything you can do about it...and it is much in here for me.
