Yarrow blizzard, like a fairy’s balloon
dandelion missiles on random trajectories
seeding manicured lawns like jagged files
or a haircut from a first week cosmetologist.
Ignore the vertigo
as the grass blades
and ants become
smaller and smaller
small as, well, ants,
it’s all just a matter of perspective –
you might expect them to look
up as self-congratulatory
you hover over head,
but the work’s down there
and ants are not grasshoppers,
nor do they need parades or shows.
