gift of a ride in the rain

here every cupboard has ants
every ants’ city is flooded
each ant route and each ant cave
each ant nursery and factory
ant hospital ant kitchen ant home
how many were there under the ground
and how long did they take to build?


let’s be careful here
there has been a lot of wind and messing
and swollen trees with heads so heavy they fall
and not enough good getting done
a lot of tossing one way then the other
marching along, bluster
as if there’s nothing else I can do

the president asked me eight years ago and tonight he asked me again
maybe it’s not so complicated
like everyone else: ready just as I am
“anxious, jealous”

lace up shoes, love allways
