Dragline Silk: Web of Illusion
By Sage Sweetwater

Hierarchical structure. Irony of a trapped spider in silk

Dragline Silk: Web of Illusion

arachnid snare
compensates for damage
dragline silk stiff and dry
synthetic webs localized failure

diminished capacity
structural engineer
cosmic law of the design load
the net effect allowing sacrificial
member to fail under the design equation

a stodgy professor
dressed in women's panties
underneath his curriculum didn't
show on the outside; advantages of silk
worn to excite the libido of low rank faculty

filament snagged
linear tugging stiffening
phase before the silk breaks
revealing sunday best lace but
a poor role model church-going
peculiar behavior of dragline silk

Copyright Ms. Sage Sweetwater, celebrity firebrand lesbian novelist
