You saucy bear. You know me.
With all your bear like thoughts.
You probably think of me when I’m naked. I like it.
You’re a bear.
You’re always naked. Or clothed? Do you feel naked – because you look naked.
Would you like some of my clothes?
And a nice dinner?! – oh, I’d really like that, to make you a nice dinner.
Filet mignon, oven baked asparagus, mashed sweet potatoes with ginger.
That would be nice.
Just the two of us, alone, together.
(guy?). – you’re not a vegetarian are you?
We could drink wine, good wine. I’d splurge for you,
We could sit by the fire, get a little drunk, share stories of our childhoods.
a naked boy,
a naked bear cub,
Is flying over Libya.
Who would have thought
Air force psy-ops
Would be dropping
Benghazi or Tripoli
Have you tasted oil berries?
They are delicious
Fingernails and the
Whites of eyes
Kiss their muscles
Sinking into desert arsenals
Near seeds of oil.
And smile with
Tongues and eyes
As we twist
Our finger nails
Into our ears
