I Saw Myself in an Ant

The ant scurried across my path,

hoisting objects onto its back that

weren’t bits of food, but small

sticks and chunks of rock.

I wanted to tell it

it couldn’t feed its family

with good intentions,

but instead

I watched in silence

as it carried those

worthless things

home.
