on the floor tile—

My god, what a wit!
I wonder what Zeus will say when he stomps on you…
I read it as the spider making the winning move. Like so many great haiku, this is open to more than one perception – and ultimately says as much about the reader as it does the author. Brilliant.
What a great chessic moment! I prefer the Vienna game with the Danube variation. I love to watch my opponent turn blue…
Curses! Foiled again!
'Checkmate' made me picture the floor as being made up of black and white tiles. One interpretation: both spider and viewer/person/.. remain frozen waiting for the other to make the first move. This one got my brain cells crackling! Thanks!
Thanks for the thoughtful responses. To quell any fears, this was at work and after ‘unfreezing’, I used the flyswatter to pick the spider up and release him outside. We called it tie. ;)
