Death Bear is a superhero of the mourning process. He comes silently, like cancer, to take away the stubborn little things that memories cling to. Also, he’s a bear. (Although, I heard a rumor that he is really Darth Vader, trying to atone for his past misdeeds, starting over in an awkward but sincere fashion. Who can be sure? I don’t know, but I’d love to ask him.)
Death Bear is just one of New York City’s many bears worth visiting. I’ll be there this April 15-19, doing “promotion”, seeing friends, researching a biographical project and riding my bicycle like the bicycle-obsessed freak I am. My plan is to remain cheerful. We’ll see what happens.
However, Brooklynites don’t have to wait until April, because Death Bear is making house calls this weekend! Text him at 347-742-2293 for an appointment. Act now, before you cheer up!
