Mountain Guide For Avoiding Bears--William Neumire

To go safely into the dark you must make a lot of noise
                         and know what you’re after.
Pretend you’re the only one
                          who deserves to get your way.
The less you think about other theories, the better.
                           Sometimes it works,

this loud flashlight tunnel toward the lake,
banging pans together at the water.

And sometimes even when you’ve carefully followed
                 the instructions,
a hungry bear can’t be fooled.
