Miss Muffet by Katarina Boudreaux

Muffet SpiderMiss Muffet:

I am writing
about your tuffet

perch

just how high you
jumped with the
spider’s entrance

if you were
really eating
something

more tasty than
curds

— what is whey —

like ice cream

maybe you needed
to hide that because
there were some pounds
growing or a plan going

maybe you actually
like spiders
and show is show

I’m curious to know
where you ran to

or more whom

and what happened
to the bowl

did you take it
with you
