The Bear That Will One Day Eat You

The bear that will one day eat you takes you out for coffee. The bear that will one day eat you takes a look at your resume. The bear that will one day eat you gives you advice about girls. The bear that will one day eat you goes to your school play. The bear that will one day eat you makes you laugh when you are sad. The bear that will one day eat you teaches you to play pool. The bear that will one day eat you consoles you when your grandparent dies. The bear that will one day eat you pushes you to be a better person. The bear that will one day eat you just sits and listens for hours. The bear that will one day eat you loses touch. On the phone, in letters, over the years: “Listen, i know we don’t talk as much these days. We live far away and we have our own lives now. But i will always be there for you, and i will always eventually eat you.”
