    i was wondering what happens to ants when you sweep them into the garbage.
    i guess they do like haiku three zero two.
    i saw on tv the dalai lama speak about flies.
    sometimes, he said, i flick them off my forearm.
    sometimes i watch their microscopic antennas rubbing together
    and sometimes i swat them dead.
    i guess he’s not a jainist

      Ha ha I guess not! I never try to intentionally hurt ants. Sometimes they do get in the way when I wipe the bench. I usually knock first which gets rid of most of them.
