Tarantella

June 14, 2020

the province of the Ionian

crawls with life, like:

the slow and deliberate tarantula

who moves through stately couples

graceful and elegant, though short

tambourines tickled with tiny toes

teeth sinking in deep – oh no

movement according to the accordion

speeding towards hysteria

dance away the delirium

140 heart beats split in sixes and eights

the spider scuttles away

just before the swordfight ends
