amongst the dead and the dying

the fly was still moving its limbs
probably pushing itself upwards to get up
to flee but didn’t make it and
was still moving when i woke up
from a nap after two hours.

but the spider was swift and
managed to get away twice but stupid
enough to come back and be
stomped by a dirty towel that i used
when i scrubbed the floor.

the spider was dead as swift
as he moved but the fly was still beating
its limbs by the time the wife
arrived after one more hour and
it was almost evening.
