The Altered Soul of the Rower

The Altered Soul of the Rower

Beyond Far Island he found
he had rowed into a web
of air and spirits
the Great Spider had woven
the width of the ocean.

He felt begin the devouring
of who he was, the devouring
that would change him
beyond all recognition.
And to think

he had only set out
for his morning row.
