Spider Spider on the Wall

All the
world-wide
web has
done for
me is
create the
illusion that
someone is
listening.

Please Note: Afterthought on Spider/Spider: A number of people have responded to the Spider/Spider short jab with hurt feelings.

I am listening is the general tone of those responses. Or: I am listening.

Well of course you are, stout hearts! I was addressing a negative aspect of the impact the web has had on all of us.

Here is the response I sent to the first such email; hopefully it clears up misunderstandings and puts that short jab in generic perspective:

“…anything with a poetic hard drive goes awry when “logic” is applied to it. I could go further and “explain” this, but that would be heaping insult on top of injury!”
