I wake up with a black widow spider crawling the length of my arm. The eyes are dark sacks of goo perched on its body. A poisonous black bulb. I hear my neighbor yell “These fucking spiders are everywhere!”
I want to reach over for the spider and flick it off my arm but I’m thinking it will just attach itself to my finger and bite my knuckles. But I’m no scientist.
My alarm clock begins to buzz and it is far out of my reach. The sun is slowly rising and you can hear the wood crack under the immense heat that is advancing against what was a cool night. I laugh to myself and think today will be a very funny day.
