camping in search of bears

there was bear poop
at the foot of the ravine
just by the trail
full of berry husks, intriguing
to the dogs.

there was a cougar
on victoria park golf course
just below downtown
that could put a hole in one.

there was a lynx
at rest in the legislature grounds
approving the shape of landscaping.

coyotes trot all through the streets
and don’t get me started
enumerating rabbits.

we are not alone here.

ladybugs, beetles, branches
rhizomes tapping at our senses
fellow travelers persist
proclaiming the truth of One Song.
