Ants

Monday, April 1st, 2013

Ants are covering our floor,

a writhing, crawling carpet.

The overtake me, climbing up my ankles, past my knees.

It’s disgusting

Over my wrists, across my neck

I get the vacuum.

I am a lover of cats and dogs, ducks and geese, mice and frogs.

I am a saver of spiders and bees

But I will destroy this entire colony

And not lose any sleep over it.
