This Can Wait

A yellow-jacket clings onto

the ceiling

A wolf spider crouches on

the wall

One can sting, but the other could bite

Or weave a web, oh so tight

— and then there’s me

and the hands that could do the most harm

one eye on me, the other on each other

A stand off

All our thoughts of how we might hurt one another

Or hide from each other

Then I turn out the lights and we fall asleep

Stillness, blackness, and the night

This can wait until morning
