Buried Alive

until sap flows in trees squirrels

squirrel around for the odd nut 

robins back home cats aprowl


farmers plow women and young

girls yawn cotton candy men and

young boys howl


no more -10 degree long underwear

artic nightmare rush down wild 


Canadian north with icicle teeth 

dagger breath no more wait

for time to go outside hear 


birds mate smell land simmer

taste tulip wine watch new

couples about to couple feel sex


rise up the beanstalk trunk stem

root of plant kingdom gods buried

underground wake up yawn breathe


out in upper world call out news

to each other well hello again

long time no see 


what's up
