Poetry from Jess Morton

Red Ants

With no color for sunset
the red ants weave their lives
fierce riddle of the elements

where sand scatters under them
all the burnt airs of summer
on this billion-year tapestry


and from the arid wildness
order is threaded out of dust
galleries grow, the queen conceives


the vast canvases of earth
gathered here on this plain ground
the cardinal patterns of Yes!
