House Guest

Once, when we were living in Guatemala, 
we got so scared at the sight of a giant black tarantula walking across the floor 
that we tried to smash it with a broom 
but it was so big we had to use a shovel 
and when we crushed it, we could hear it cracking 
and it left a mark on the floor 
and a regret that all these years later 
I still can feel.
