Daddy Long Legs

What patience you must have
Sitting above my head
As the steam rises
from my shower
Day after day after day

Do you sleep the long hours away
Dreaming of the meals
That might come your way
as you wait
Perched there on the ceiling

Is it dreams that make your legs twitch
Or some invisible vibration
That blows upon your web
A movement
Barely seen

Do you traverse my house when I'm not there
Hunting and eating and exploring
Returning to your place
In the shower
Above my head?
