Mercy
by Rudy Francisco

She asks me to kill the spider.
Instead I get the most
peaceful weapons I can find.

I take a cup & a napkin
I catch the spider put it outside
and allow it to walk away.

If i am ever caught in the wrong place
at the wrong time just being alive
and not bothering anyone

I hope I am greeted
with the same kind
of mercy.
