Courting Trouble
by Joanna M. Weston

if charged by a bear
get out your credit-card
so that he can swipe it
in passing
                    it’s possible
to run up a huge debt this way
just lie down let the bear
take the jump
its tummy being careful
not to laugh loudly
or the bear may ask
what’s the joke
would be difficult with
your head in its mouth
