10. In a teaspoon
11. With a biscuit
12. During teatime
13. Like a robot
14. With a straw
15. With love
16. In the sunshine
17. In the rain
18. With salt

20. And… just right.

Places You Don’t Want to Find a Spider

In my summer creative writing course, I wrote a few poems and a few lists. Here is a list turned into a poem.

Places You Don’t Want to Find a Spider

In the shower
In your bed
In your closet
On your head
Tangled up
In your hair
Around your house
Everywhere

In your pocket
In your shoe
Where’d it go?
Not a clue
In your sandwich
Then your mouth
Steadily
Moving south

In your toothpaste
In your lawn
Until, squish
Spider’s gone.
