Shimmering Bear Agenda

called the summit positive key differences remained
unflattering image in American press domestic agenda
stalled in divided Congress naïve to Republican opponents

hunters shot and killed a brown bear in Sapporo bounding
along residential street clawing at gates of military
barracks black bears native to large parts of Japan

emblems of New World ambition market crashes of
1929 and 2008 art deco halo of the Chrysler Building
shimmering in the far distance history permeating lives
