Balance isn’t always necessary

A dragon fly flew in through the slightly open window. It was already late. As with Issa, I keep house casually. A long legged spider webbed itself a spot in the corner close to the floor between the bedside table and the wall. Noticed it yesterday. I foresaw the dragon fly getting entangled. A shoe on the floor close by got tossed, breaking the web, scattering the spider. Just in time too.

safe, stilled; spent the night
