The Bear

Rating: 3.2

I sometimes glimpse bits of steam
coming up from
some fault in the old snow
and bend close and see it is lung-colored
and put down my nose
and know
the chilly, enduring odor of bear.

While it is not my topic of choice, this poet is Jack London's heir. This is survival, gritty and ugly as it is. Top marks and my admiration for a brutal life-and-death story told in appropriate words and visuals.10 of course.
