God in the Details

by Mike White


I’ve seen to it that ants
carry their dead

in the ceremonial style
of a great long poem

but the distances
are manageable

and how heavy
after all is an ant

when I am myself
a shadow borne

so lightly

 

Mike White has published poems in magazines including The New Republic, The Threepenny Review, The Iowa Review, The Antioch Review, Verse, and Poetry. He lives in Salt Lake City and serves as co-editor of Quarterly West. (5/2007)
