Did you know they crawl mostly at night?
Spinning their webs to snare their prey in the day.
They like warm places.
They dwell in dark recesses .
Sometimes as you sleep they select
an ear or a nose.
A slight tickle may make you fidget as you dream
They just wish a home to feel safe in.
So let them crawl;
over blanket, over pillow, on cheek,
over lips, to the darkness within.
