Bear Woman @ Safeway

She was big, huge in fact.
When she moved it was
one paw in front of the other
like a stunned grizzly.

She wore a red plaid jacket
which her slow boyfriend
liked to play checkers on
at the casino.

Biologists sat in a nearby truck
keeping tabs on her feeding habits
with a transmitter on her collar.
Most likely she was after

pop & chips again
but weaving thru the parked cars
she’d be lucky to make it
across the lot.
