Reaction

Skin crawling, trying to leave its rightful place,
A phobic dread far deeper than thought,
A rictus grin on fear filled face,
Glimpsed horror making hair follicles taught.

Adrenaline causing pulse to rapidly race,
Black body infusing irrational hate,
Spindly legs, skittering pace,
My boot, my reaction, spider’s fate.
