Luncheon Guests

“Luncheon Guests”
by Liz Bennefeld

A tiny spider
trudges across the ceiling,
looking for a corner
for her home—
a quiet place
to set up web and nest,
where little flies
will come to call
and stay for lunch.

Note: “Luncheon Guests” appeared in Bloodroot (Grand Forks, ND: Women’s Resource and Development Center, issue 3: October 1977), a literary journal. Copyright © 1975, by Elizabeth W. Bennefeld [Liz Wicker].  Part of the LEN FULTON LITERARY MAGAZINE COLLECTION 1960 – 1986.
