Two moments while home for a funeral

Ben Caplan

On the back porch there are large spider webs and, in one, a bug fully cocooned. The spiders are brown and white. Facing the driveway are three more webs and spiders, slightly smaller. I imagine them as spider eggs in early summer. Now, having hatched, they are beginning a new colony. They could be rivals instead of family, or in spite? I realize I know nothing about spiders except the way they make me feel. Pulling up to the beach on the way back from the service, there is already a car in the lot. A man sits inside, windows up, moustache on, cigarette lit. We walk down to the water anyway and strip. The clouds with the sun behind them colour us silvergrey. Our hands stay over our breasts until the water reaches our elbows. Looking back, the man stands at the edge of the lot watching us watching him. —Geoff Rose

Figure out what you want. Be specific. Then figure out what it costs. The price is usually not calculated in dollars. Then go for it. The rest is just problem solving.
