Think of an anthill; that coming and going,
vibrating energy expended on gathering,
carting, sorting, crisscrossing
without missing a step.
Think of an anthill; single-minded
survival instincts, cooperation,
stealing, shoving, lifting, cleaning,
storing, eating, dying.
Think of an anthill; lines of workers
carting weight too heavy for spindly limbs,
sand grain by sand grain
changing the earth.
