Ants crawl along your arms,
whispering as they pass through the valley of your elbows,
dancing along the soft shallow dips of skin along your collarbones,
humming graceful hymns as they approach your throat,
throwing their voices higher and higher,
as they climb over
the curvature of your chin
and prance across your swollen
purple lips.

They enter you,
coating your mouth
with their squirming bodies,
jostling one another
as they descend your throat,
filling your body
with their own.
