Tarantula

Cyanotype print, toned with black bean soaking liquid (print by author)

Long-legged hairy creepy crawly minding its own business on the dry ground. Long-legged hairy creepy crawly held up on a stick to be examined closely. Long-legged hairy creepy crawly interrupted! Long-legged hair creepy crawly put back down, gently, over there. Long-legged hair creepy crawly recovers dignity and returns to its own business, trying not to mind the interruption.

A photograph of long-legged hairy creepy crawly, enlarged in the night on a bedsheet that flaps in the wind. The gust gives all the long hairy legs watching the slide show the creepy crawlies on the back of the neck, then scuttles off to gently blow aside a few dry leaves to give long-legged hairy creepy crawly an easier path, without further interruptions, back to its place out of sight.


Another prose poem toward my Camp NaNo project – thank you for reading!
