Big Bugs

ants in single file bending green blades
our bocce balls careening off of hills
sandy cities situated among dandelion landscapes
earthquake obliterated, front yard infested

our eyes are antennae, hands mandibles,
brains compound eyes — thinking five times
for every thought required

a big ball hits the fence, scares the squirrel
gutteral, he takes to tree
