All I Need to Learn about Male/Female Relationships I Learned from the Nature Channel

Running across the March ice

of Lake Erie

(even its name says

it’s eerie)


how that ice might look safe


it’s eerier

cause it could break

at any second


how thin is the difference between fear and terror

when you fall through winter’s ice in spring

even when you’re running your fastest

across this frozen spider’s web

like a male spider

attempting to reach the black widow spider

even after her ripping off his seven arms and legs

in his attempt at love

and sex

he strums his last remaining leg along

her finely weaved web

and the male spider’s thinking:

I’ll get her this time.
