Peep Tanka

by Allan Haslinds

Lifelessly yellow.
Herald of fertile spring days,
bird of confection.
Soft sweet heads ready to smush
smiling faces doomed to die.


Author's Note: I can't help myself. They're just so... smushable. Happy spring holidays, everyone.

bizarre, upon first read ... i didn't even associate the poem with "peeps" ... and was not sure what it was about. guess I just don't think about peeps or holidays all that much really =) then i read anne's comment about what a peep is ... and i thought to myself ... what the hell is this about. and read further comments ... tying the dream together. and now I understand the poem. very interesting read.

This was interesting. I didnt quite get what you were talking about at first either, I prefer the chocolate bunnies myself.

Now I want a peep. I used to get in trouble for microwaving them. (They'd blow up and get huge!) Mmm... peeps
