12/08/10: Kerhonkson: Bear

He comes from the woods
on all fours
brown back bristling
in the
cold morning sun

Up on hind legs
he sniffs at the wind
down once again
nuzzles a blueberry bush

I sit
tin cup coffee at window
He sniffs
sparse brown grass
noses a birdfeeder
scratches icy earth

having found
that which he came for
he’s back to the woods
a frozen squirrel clenched
excited hungry mouth
