Unnatural Hibernation

I

Furrowing
The hedgehog
Emerges

The bear
Puts his nose
Out of the cave

Geese fly overhead
Wings flapping
Honking squonking

Nature dictates
Winter’s hibernation
Naturally

II

Behind the window
Cold knuckles pressed
Against the glass pane

Her teary eyes
Peek outside
The curtain’s edge

Hibernating
Female with a
Broken wheelchair

Survival of the fittest
Is alive today
Unnaturally
