Alas, a BEAR!! (5/7)

Standing on hind legs,
Roaring, claws pointing; it’s charged!
Does he run? or yell?!


We interrupt this message to bring you

my blood muscle
got pushed back
it’s suffocating
in the back wall
of my chest cavity
I think I’m breathing
not sure oxygen
is traveling
distress, distraught
what’s the difference
what does it matter
