Our life is a fire dampened, or a fire shut up in stone.
–Jacob Boehme, De Incarnatione Verbi

 

 

Out of his spinnerets

came those silken threads of lies.

We were led

into that sticky orb web

where he lay in wait for us;

We’re now reaping darkness;

though our hearts are turning into stones

we’re nurturing the fire

shut up there.

He is sightless.

We gather

await

for the strike

to devastate each

spiral strand

with our flame

and birth light.
