ant-i art. -by maria t.

ants moths and picaso

little ones
you have come to visit
you love to be near man
nest beneith warm concreat
cracked paths are your favorite
also walk up the sides of trees
your tiny feet stepping close to
the powdery wings of moths

you carry your dead friends
on your heads
once  i saw five of you draging
a dead spyder
under a broken
paving slab to be eaten
by your hungry clan

it is said that on seeing dazzel-painted trucks
driving thru the streets of paris during the great war
picaso pointed and exclaimed
‘we (the cubists) are responsble for that’
he didnt mention moths
or zebras at all
thats how we know that he was full of himself
