Standing at the sink
Trying to wake up
Noticing an ant
Crawling  up the wall
Wondering when she ate last and
Speculating about her solitary mission.

Scooping her up on a business card
Carrying  her to the back porch
Crumbling up a Trader Joe’s corn chip
Offering her a tiny piece of it
Watching her slowly walk away
Contemplating what I’ve just done.
