Ant Tracks – v3

under a rock, hidden
a complete cityscape
hidden from view
an image of wonder
their handiwork, creative,
roads, side streets, and
big highways between
the entrances to their homes below
the little world revealed

a maze of tunnels, of tracks
beneath the leaves, the pebbles
disruption, chaos, in the turning
the rolling away of the stone
exposing their world to inspection
pale citizens of the world of the darkness
exposed from under a rock;
sounding an alarm, defensive,
hide, hide deeper, their cry.
