a single sanguine sample
declares its delinquency
the fulmination inside her head
crimson crawling along her silken web
a family waits, wonders, and bargains
inside, strangers purport to understand
humans and their humours they hope
anatomy, capricious as it is, will now
permit them entry
anaesthesia standing by, Neith reminds them yet again
a moment astray and the web is unwound
they bate their breaths so that she may breathe
Competing interests None declared.
