After the Wake

by


David R. DiSarro    


 
 

I sat on the curb

and drew misshapen

stick figures with the heel

of my shoe, tracing the sand

left in the street after winter. 

 

A colony of ants collided

with my foot and went

on the offensive, climbing

the cuff of my pants

until I flicked some off,

stood, stomped, delighted

to see them splatter.
