bear

This oddly constructed verse is for my friend who came to see me this weekend.

my friend
(like a bear)
is just there
in his lair

inhabiting his space
living his own life
his troubles are his own

he may share them
(his life and troubles that is)
but they remain
his

his joys abound
uncontained
given away freely
in my home

big man
funny man
happy man
my friend

you look silly
without your beard
but then, so do I
