Grizzly

Mill Old
 
 

I’ve been here before,
between fences of wakefulness,
frosting bare-toothed
in stripy drift.
 

The tattered angle
of my shadow
remained,
its ebony gore
still caught
in the bear’s black paw
 

while I
slipped away,
 

lost to the drag
and claw of sleep,
grey matter clasping
the grainy snap
of what may
or may not
have been.
