Do Not Disturb

I watched
out of the corner of my eye,
I watched a spider
c     r     a     w     l
     across the acoustic ceiling above my bed.
It was there,
          just to the
               side
of my vision.

It
moved
in
brief
flashes,

always frozen when my head moved.

I looked up
as it looked
down.
It, reflected twice.
          Me, eight times.
I blinked,
               it was gone.

I stayed in bed.
