Strength in Fragility 

Anansi wove man

from stardust spun

spider thread

an empty egg sack

waiting for

countless suns

to fill it.

Steel breaks

where Anansi pulls

taunt against gravity

yet each fragile

shimmering thread

remains

holding

solar clusters

as they pulsate

underneath

your brown skin.
