Men Like Ants

Men Like Ants

they scurry
in the background:
men like ants.


when seen from 
reasonable perspective,
we're no big deal.

ancient buildings,
survivors from
forgotten 
earthquakes

stand uncertainly,

ready to fall when winds
blow in certain directions


men like ants
can do nothing
about earthquakes.

ruined buildings,
origins forgotten,

purposes unknown.


when i am gone,
what i will leave?

(no stones, piled
on stones. left as if
objects of wonder)
