The chalkboard in the coffee shop asked

“What animal would you most love as a pet?”

exotic……simple…..companionable…….protector

I’d like to be the Bear’s pet
and my bear would be the best owner ever

she’d take me on long walks in the forest
show me where to find the fattest bugs;
where the snow fields last longest – the joy of body sledding
she’d teach me to fish- get right in the stream – see the
silver flash leap, perfect timing

my bear’d know just the right moment to eat raspberries
where to get a good back rub – detect the scratchiest pine trees

she’d show how to look fierce and foreboding, how
to give the tourists a run for their money, or posing
cute for pictures

and at the end of it all
the summer over, bellies full and hanging over our belts,
spent leaves scenting the air with change,
we’d make for the cave – settle into comfy boughs
and like two happy pals – equal and trusting-
snore each other through long the winter nap.

“just remember that’s a bear there in the bunch with you. And you just can’t do better than a bear” Lyle Lovett
