When one is a strand of a web
it's difficult to avoid thinking of the whole 
as you are integral (or perhaps not)
to the structure which
at the proper zoom level
is the most relevant fact of your life
though if you only look at the area
between each of your nodes
you're an individual
standing alone


and your tension must be internally generated
bootlaces and straps
but where did that web come from
if not for a spider, designer, an intelligence?
free will at some level, yes?

perhaps if the molecules of the web's components
or the nodes
could be described
properly predicted
we strands, strings
may see how we fit
and why we should accept
our temporary roles 
though an insect is skeptical
about the word "roles"
the fly prefers "murder weapon"
whose dissolution
makes the world a safer place.
