Ants and Us 


Andrew Burke


Today again
in this new town
a million or two tiny ants
keep formation going about
their business following
their instincts and i liken
them again to us as
i have since i was knee-high
to a grasshopper we too
follow our instincts to eat
to reproduce to follow
our leaders with our two feet
handicapped as we are
by human intelligence
beclouding our instincts with
unsettling clouds of thought.





Notebook (Darlington)

Ganesha burns among

milk cartons    plastic coke bottles



in a cold hillside morning

a boy repeats his callsign



frog replies


ceremonies together


ant runs across my thought
