Turning on the light to see

Midnight Ants are running free

swarming in my kitchen.


Shy nocturnal insects never

seen by day, emerging only

in the warmer weather

scuttle solitary secret paths

amongst the table’s crumbs and clutter,

exploring kitchen benches.

I get my glass of water

turn the light switch off again,

and leave the late-shift ants continue

toiling in the darkness then.


I don’t kill Life with deadly poisons, thus

 when morning comes, the shelves,

and my kitchen bench are spotless,

as though cleaned by magic elves.




The Reverend Hellfire..

still here despite the predictions.
