cave

A Poem by paradoxical
"

written for an allpoetry contest. prompt was "wake me up when it's all over"

"
soon the bears will head for caves
to hibernate into happiness,
seeking easy solace in spring
should they survive winter.
if Koko the gorilla can hand sign
her sadness; if a pig can paint,
then a bear can learn to type a manual
on how to escape inconsistencies
between contentment of pillow dreams
and the cold floor of morning.
until then, childhood resolutions
are laid to rest in compromise
because that swing set is broken now;
the bears keep their secrets
and autumn slowly approaches
