Appalachian Elegy *3

night moves

through the thick dark

a heavy silence outside

near the front window

a black bear

stamps down plants

pushing back brush

fleeing manmade


roaming unfettered


any place can become home

strutting down

a steep hill

as though freedom

is all

in the now

no past

no present
