The Spider and the Fly

Patient indeed is the Spider
       and intransigent
biding her time,
knowing for certain
       her art more durable
       than mind-spun enterprise
Elemental realist
       the Spider will be there
       in a corner
dancing upon the taut architecture
       of her own dark heart
       when the West, like Babylon
              is fabulous
awaiting with delight 
a brazen ragged buzz.
