    I am having trouble locating recently posted poems.
    If someone could point me in their direction, I would be grateful.

    If, on the other hand, there is no such collection, perhaps I may be allowed to kick things off here with a silly poem that I submitted back in 2015. Please consider adding your own contributions.

    ARACHNOPHILIA

    The battle had ended
    and that's when I spied her -
    surrounded by dead,
    a magnificent spider.

    There we were, the spider and I.
    Facing each other. Eye to eye.
    Corpses of people and spiders all 'round...
    all but us dead, and nary a sound.

    As we studied each other with cautious respect
    I lowered my weapon, for I could detect
    a sad, lonely tear in one of her eyes -
    and what happened next came as quite a surprise.

    She lifted a leg, and placed it on me
    then beckoned I follow her under a tree.
    It was there we discovered a passion so great
    that the spider and I proceeded to mate.

    Our 500 children now wander the land -
    a sight so inspiring, moving and grand.
    Some have two legs, and others have eight
    but all think the taste of humans is great.
