Broken Ant Farm

Every minute you spend both
Being and remembering
Is another minute spent

Living life based on a true
Story. What would you look like
To a storyless creature,

One that was clever but not
Only without a story
Of its own—wholly na├»ve,

Within real intelligence,
Regarding storytelling?
Maybe something like an ant

Looks to any one of you
Innocent of the knowledge
Of the scented ways of ants—

Have you ever watched one long,
How it seems almost random
And redundantly random

At that in the way it moves,
Back and forth and in circles
But circling furiously,

Intent upon some business,
Some form of exploration
Makes no sense at all to you?

Is this an experience
That sounds familiar to you?
It’s based on a true story.
