The ants are taking over

The ants are taking over the house
it is a celebration of national ant-hood day.
Over me, the whole army marches
their little feet tickling,
their loud mouths gossiping, guilty of storing food for colder days
in my make-up trays they bathe
even in my dreams, I am chased by big ants
that grow wings and spit fireballs
and I wake up with a gut-wrenching fear
of small sticky steps
the ants are taking over
they remind me of the marriage age I'm skipping
the dates I lose in the calendars
and the babies unborn, wasted down the trash
the ants are taking over, funny I just notice them
well, it's summertime
