Umbrella Manifesto

They do not realize

that we are really spiders.

Even when they see our webs

with something trapped in them

or our delicate legs

or even our egg clusters.

No matter how sophisticated we appear

lush and romantic

evocative and fragile

or stately and dramatic

our hearts are savage steel springs!

Robert Frost glimpsed the truth of us.

We lurk in unexpected places

in vast throngs.

Some day we'll make our move...

in rain

in sun

by sea

by air!

We have allies.

We are masters of disguise.

We are both great

and small.

We are legion

and our day is dawning!
