They say that, in your dreams,
 a polar bear represents a reawakening….
 
And there;
In sight;
With the full moonlight off white in the night;
Reflecting a scene
 of extrasolar plight….
 
Atop a very tall dirt pillar; a plateau;
Was a dead,
more than half rotted
 polar bear
   lying on its back—
Skeleton totally exposed….
 Partly decomposed;
Half white/
 Half hacked—
Face half on
 like the matter of fact.
 
Emptily gazing at the stars.
 
I looked at the bear;
Then leapt off the plateau
 soaring into that night.
 
That curious night.
 So clear—and concise!
   So wildly, peacefully, full of advice.
 
So scary
So lonely
So nice.
 
At least I can fly in my dreams.
