My Prayer to the Polar Bear

Give me one more summer,
A true summer, not a mush
Of mosquitoes and viruses,
Please, good beast, trudging
Through the slush we have made
Of your world, please grant me
One more bloody mary morning
In a bar with clean wood, indirect sun,
One more time to feel the dip in my stomach
That to me means love
