hunched over winter jacket out to get the mail
then the laugh, a wolf pack preen pose agedstrutswagger
ten postureproudknives flashing whatchagonnado
oldmanrisesUP nowordswarnjustfisticuffs--atthejaw tossingnecks
never old never young just consequence as punches
whatdidyouexpect, come howling
surprise?!! YOU AREN'T EVEN TRYING!
I killed a hundred men younger than you
and roared as they were dying
I am the bear, you call and I come
are you having fun?
a porch covered in letters
WHAT IF I HAD A GUN?!!
