Long-Jawed Orb-Weaver

O silent trapeze artist
weaver of wet meadows

your city has invisible paths
where we get stuck

where we watch the leaves dance
hear the blossoms croon

where we learn the brief escape
of our own rituals glued to these mortal

threads. Soon we will become you—
great weaver of new directions

but we won’t know it
and neither will you.
