"Hedgehogs"

(for Julie)

There are days when roses are just pollen carriers,
the morning sun is only a blob of institutional mustard,
and strawberries packets of seeds looking
for spaces between teeth to creep into. Those
are the days the hedgehogs have curled into balls
with spikes out in the darker corners of your mind.
