these ants

who do they think they are?

what do they think they’re doing?

working at 6:30 on Sunday morning

               on such a fine July Sunday morning

what treasure are they seeking

        in the shade of the dandelions and moss

                                and sequoia golden rod?

and what makes them think they can place their sandy condominium

in the cracks of my patio stones?

what gives them the confidence

that I won’t set down  my cup of black Russian tea (laced with anis)

and pulverise them?

it’s strange how they know

that five feet from my back step

I will  tolerate their projects

and preoccupations older than man
