From bristly foliage

From bristly foliage
by Jordan McElheran
to branches underneath
if a squirrel
and runs
looking for seeds
and such like my mother
christmas shopping and
hiding them
in the basement
is it akin to that old chestnut
? the one about squirreling
things away? Or is it
just another pile of presents
under a tree
in the earth?
