if I was a bear
i would lumber and
i would make into my home
the cave behind this waterfall,
and wait for you
to flail over

i would punch your fish-face
with my head-sized paw
until your
gills caked with blood
until your
popcorn brain
eked out even one thought,
i would spin you on my claw
i would watch the water fall
and listen
for larger prey than you-

i would peel off every single scale
and underneath you would be blue.
