Music to Read By -- Giant Spiders by Devin Davis

"I won't sit still until I'm upside down in the back of your eyes."  This song is a string of metaphors and similes, put to infectious, bouncy indie pop music (created by a one man band playing all the instruments).  Heavily influenced by the Who, this is an unknown classic with an ending that's impossibly fantastic.  Its lyrics have challenged me to keep finding new and weird metaphors in my poems.  It also revs me up to write.
