Hibernation Theology

An oversized pin cushion riddled with needles
he appears in the field on the ninth of March.

Looking no worse for the wear of winter
he inches along, waddling, stopping

sniffing the first green shoots of clover
pushing up. A spiny miracle raised up

himself, he points his snout
through Lent to Easter and eats.
