Hunting Season

Green Man, mixed media on panel, 2015 copyright GPD



the bachelor in the cornfield

is bred to stalk prey


crystalline snow falls on the barrel of his gun

the clean metal

cold before firing


he is alone with his reflection

upon the bitter water

of a lifeless pond


no one else can see what the bachelor creates

in the middle of nowhere


no one else will know what the bachelor did

when he entered the clearing


he is quiet in his camouflage complex

his footsteps measure

the distance to Chance, Fortune and back
