Spider Wisdom

I know the
spider walking

my bare foot
…….right now
knows more
about
…….the universe
than I do.


I can sense
……….it has
more
….knowledge
in its
tiny
….pin-like
…………..body
than in
my
……………..190 pound
mass.


Here I am
……………….with
…………………….my huge old
melon head
….and all these books
and the
……………..internet
which can
access
all the
data accumulated
…………………………..since the
ancestors of
…………..this Anglo blood

in my
veins
……..came storming
out
…………from the
……………caves and
jungles,
murdering
………………….life.


While
………the ancestors of
my other
..blood
…….( what is called )
the American
..Indian,
thousands of tribes
..many
..nations
……….living together
…………………with relatively
few
conflicts
………..peacefully
for
centuries,
honoring
all of creation
by their
gentle
gleaning
of the
earth.


Yet at
this
………moment
………in my
.body
..inside
my head
….it is
…………………….brutal
and full of fear
………………….the white man’s
blood
his dilemma
overwhelms me once again.
…………….But the spider is alert
………being a wise and resourceful
old arachnid
radar on
………………………….swiftly jumps
off
my foot like a Swan Lake ballerina
…….and
…………….disappears
under my
desk
before
I can
……….murder
…………………………it.
