I saw it drop down 

from the roof of the car 

into the open driver side window

I held my breath,

I hoped you wouldn’t notice it. 

You pulled into the suicide lane 

A car pulled up behind you. 

Then you saw the spider. 

You did not go. 

You began to blow at it.

You tried to make it go out the window.

It did not go.

You began to curse. “Fuck! Shit! Why?!”

The spider took its leave. 

The guy in the car behind us 

pulled forward angrily 

Passed us 

Flipped you off 

You should just tell him at the light,

 I said 

Just yell to him out your window 

“There was almost a spider on me!”

Then he will be remorseful.
