Disappearing Act

I was sitting at the computer
Minding my own business
On the Fortean Times message board
Reading a thread about werewolf sightings
And scary camping stories
When I caught a movement
Out of the corner of my eye
There was a fat yellow spider skittering
Across the wall
Heading toward the window
Spiders should never be able to move that fast
I called for backup but by then
The spider scooted behind
My gold bamboo mirror
With painted finches at the top
We moved the mirror
And the spider was gone
I never saw where it went.
