Cameron Pierce / Ant Fat
Today I watched some ants eat a rotten nectarine.
The ants were obese,
like if you bit into their thoraxes
blubber would gush out instead of blood.
If I ever went on a rotten fruit diet
and walked around on six limbs all day,
if I remained fat despite so much effort,
I would just die of devastation,
maybe with a little ant fat on my lips,
warm and dripping from the kill.
