Poemlet

I have no title for this. It's how I just failed at lying down...
(title suggestions, as well as other thoughts, very welcome)

Untitled

This skylight is another world
pinhole camera shadow-world, rectangular
Silver screen bent like old photographs
rolled into rubber-banded bundles, painted
tree-shapes blurring
streaking sharp, framed
with old-dust spiderwebs.
                    The sky
  light soars in soothing space
far over beige carpet;
    I watch, and feel
no need to touch

            though sister spiders float
down on world-spanning mist
to say the sky
is here.
