becoming (Bella Bear)


I once made
a little bear

cut the fur
against a pattern

material tufts

straying hair

bulbous outlines
I failed to recognize

inside out
and each edge
another edging

little pins
and little pins

and enjoined
by the detail
of close stitching

stray pieces
of random fluff
then filled
to make a body

a mouth
a nose
and eyes

a face
new born

so Bella Bear

as though she always
