Ants on the Desert Island

The small ants have made their crumbled holes
at the dry base of the stressed maple
bricked in by a city street.

Does this opportunistic colony hinder or help?
One hopes it does give something back or their country may collapse.
One hopes their tunnels benefit the roots of their world.

The tree, among many, is doomed by our planting for
want for adornment.

This their brittle universe.
