ant problem

damned ants
I stomp on them
early in the morning
as i make my way
to the coffee pot
little pests,

all
crawling in a
conga line
like cruise ship
passengers
lined up
to disembark
at Port Everglades
at about
5AM

damned ants
they shouldn’t
be here
not here
…not near
my house
this house…
sacredly built in
the Everglades
ants need
to respect
…us

after all

we’ll be here
for at least
another
fifteen years

SO
they need

to

move

  1. My first ethological studies were when I was 5. I sat and watched ants working their hills for hours. I introduced food items and building materials. I did feel omnipotent. Except when they got in my pants.
