Bears 

           bears besieged the townthey came from the forest with a look in their eye

we viewed them from behind curtains

uncertain of their motives 
           they padded down the street 

  knocking over bins 

one tried to steal a car

some others knocked on doors and tried to sell the occupants Watchtower 
they roamed around for a few days and all of a sudden they just upped and left leaving no trace this ever happened

    POSSIBLY THE BEARS WERE THE AMERICAN DREAM
    STICK FIGURES CAUGHT UP IN PERPETUAL REFUSAL
    AMERICAN GANGSTERS IN FUR COATS
    DAISY BEAR AND FITZGERALD BEAR
    “THE WATCHTOWER”
    A BEACON OF LITERARY VITALITY
    PERHAPS ASLEEP IN OUR OUTER LIFE
    WE TOSS ABOUT THE KEYS TO THE KINGDOM
    WHO ARE WE—EDUCATED APES PRANCING ABOUT

      the American Dream in fur with shit stuck dry
      round the hole – bears in motorcades covered in paper confetti –
      intimidation through menace – bears gangsters and the government –
      paw print signatures will never stand up in court
      far flung rumours of circus bears playing trombones, touching the brass
      “It’s all witchcraft”, they shouted, “mass hallucinations”

      – it never was
      – never is

      – desperately she insisted Moby Dick was called Massive Dick

      – she was wrong
      – we were wrong

      cowboys try and lasso the truth
      quicksilver evasion of facts

      someone call the cops

        the historicized dread of future poops
        the color and texture of previous drops
        evidence stuck there
        like sisters and brothers
        strait-jacket reality
        outside the narrow borders
        outside the bedroom window
        past the blue-black bulls
        only chaos
        the kind that made Jesus nervous
        those numbered days counting down

      BEARS GIVING INTELLIGENT REPLIES TO ALL QUESTIONS
      THE FEAR OF EXPOSING IGNORANCE CONSTRAINS
      LESSER BEASTS FROM MENTIONING “THE WATCHTOWER”

        CARELESS HEDONISM
        URBAN MYSTERY
        MUSICAL COMEDY
        constant poetic critiques
        readers pulling thoughts
        in different directions
        each piece of bread is a conceptual boundary
        the texture of possible prostitution
        strange meat in all shapes and sizes
        infantile, irritating, confusing
        cash replaces romance
        scientific sex
        one for the road
        I remember hearing you say that
        “honey child, honey baby, one for the road”
