Poem Comparing Ant and Human Society

Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem is about the ant world, and how it can seem like a smaller scale version of the human one.
On the Surface of it, Ants…
cobweb on dewdrop grass
obscuring the formicidae sky
might resemble hazy canopy to a soldier
wondering about life while
strolling earth’s surface
among the alien space
above its colony of queens and workers
hidden order of hymenoptera
subterranean maze has order
