MIDNIGHT ANTS

MIDNIGHT ANTS

*

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.
