Brown Bear

little bears in our tree
   could have saved
   our world from a
two year old toddler.

   (when the tree fell,
inevitably leaving us 
shattered ornaments
      all over the room)

it didn't happen.

      the tree did not
topple and shatter
      anything at all


some brown bears fish,
   diving in nose first

making a big splash,
sometimes catching 
      one at a time,

eating to gain fat reserves 
      for a long winter nap.

   (the best time for naps,
i speak from experience)
