I’m Dinner Tonight

Tendrils so thin they should be fragile,

wrap and adhere.

By the time they are felt, sensed,

it is already too late.

Surrounded by spider silk

it’s an undeniable impulse to struggle

even though I know that by doing so

I am hastening my death.

Just what I needed to send me to bed with nightmares, Hully. Clinging and tasty...

Do you remember the video? I didn't until it started playing, but then I could remember it very well.

Thank you, Mark. Me, I quite like the things, but no one else in the house can stand them.
