There’s a spider in my head.

His long hairy legs,

Creep across my brain

and clasp on my amygdala.

It’s multitudinous eyes

scan my synapses.

It feeds its webs into the gaps

and creates bonds.

The darker parts

become illuminated,

as the charge moves

through alleys and valleys.

Forgotten thoughts,

dismissed realisations,

flood back and connect

the dots left unused.

Power comes back online,

interior networks resume.

The dream hound had told me

I needed to connect.

Is this the link

that was required?

Or is this

just an ego response?

Am I mistaking

a self contained intranet,

for a wider, interconnected

sociable, emotional internet?
