ant problem

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

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

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

after all

we’ll be here
for at least
fifteen years

they need
