Black bear on Sombrio beach


The space between panic and
calm
was thirty yards I
guessed
as he lumbered forward

The time it took to cock a
shutter
was pure terror but I
clicked
and he halted at the noise

The relief and damp sweat
heat
stank the beach as I
pissed
uncontrollably

The innocence of his retreat
shamed
the wet legs of my quick-dry
pants

G..2005
