“Teddy Bear” by Steven Jacobson


eyes grey and granite, sparkling and shining, like the
moonlight luminously across the lake.

 

beard soft and shaggy like a large and
lovable saint bear-nard pup.

 

face gentle and gentile like an
uplifting and used book.

 

soul lucent and lovely like the
pure and precious driven snow.

 

hair sticky and short, like a
grown and grey koala.

 

tummy oval and oversize, like a sweet and
succulent water melon.

 

heart rendering and reachable, like a
rich and reliable light house.
