Disappearing Battalions

Soldier crabs

Nodules with legs

Scampering battalions

Move in their synchronized symmetry

Across the sand

Soldier crabs

Sifting through each grain of sand

In search of nourishment

Disappearing into little holes

As danger approaches

Covering themselves with tiny sand beads

Perfectly created

To shut them into safety

As if they’d never existed
