A Bear



He smells almost like a real bear,  like burning tires and garbage.


The bear is made of paper – he is hollow.


Where the light hits right, you can see inside his head and his mouth.


He appears to have masking or packing tape holding the inside of his head together.


He has no actual fur, but some dark lines indicating fur.


The bear is held down by strings tied around rocks. 


The rocks were once in a river, then in a child’s pocket.  They made the child clack when she walked, heavy.


My mother kept a photo of this bear in an old book.
