Deep in couch cushions blue velvet I found a movie ticket

Sliding my hand down the wall between the wet brick I hid my jar

Once when vacuuming a couch, a spider as big as my hand popped up surprised

And I screamed surprised

And the children screaming ran to me

Which is to say they ran towards the spider between them and me

So I screamed, No! and, Stay Back!

Only a crease of memory
