Charles Simic - The Supreme Moment

As an ant is powerless 
Against a raised boot, 
And only has an instant 
To have a bright idea or two. 
The black boot so polished, 
He can see himself 
Reflected in it, distorted, 
Perhaps made larger 
Into a huge monster ant 
Shaking his arms and legs 
Threateningly? 

The boot may be hesitating, 
Demurring, having misgivings, 
Gathering cobwebs, 
Dew? 
Yes, and apparently no.
