Watchers

My pleasures are plenty, my troubles are two.

A. E. Housman, XVII from Additional Poems

I guess I’m lucky with my undisturbed daddy
long-legs sitting on the ceiling with offspring,
as watching the thirteen little ones, not bigger
than a pinhead, makes me wonder: what do we
do when there is no one to watch?
