Two Fears, Anna Fullmer

I used to be just a ball.

Now, I am tethered to you by a fine, shimmering string.

How easily you could cut

me off—


While we sleep, spiders do arachnid acrobatics, flipping

into the holes of our waxy ears, dry mouths. We wake with

a strange sensation in our brains,

look into each other’s eyes and say:

good morning.
