The bald eagle soared overhead, turning lazy circles against a
backdrop of rich forested Alaskan mountainside.
As luck would have it, Graham Barnett had seen this same
eagle on the way to work that morning. High above them both,
the sun-kissed peaks of the Chugach Mountains glittered with
their snowy caps, tree lines receding into grays and browns of
Graham couldn’t have asked for a more peaceful moment to
enjoy his hometown of Moose Springs. A moment to sit on the
back steps of his diner, take a break, and sip a root beer.
If it just weren’t for the moose trying to make love to his
pickup truck fifteen feet away.
“Ulysses, we do this every day, buddy.” Resting his arms on
his thighs, he watched the fifteen-hundred-pound bull moose
press his nostrils to the window of Graham’s abused Dodge,
snuffing along the seal. Long, wet streaks of moose goo
smeared on glass still crusty from the previous day’s love
“The truck just isn’t into you. You’ve got to let this go, man.
Move on to something better.”
This was all about Graham’s buns. Which was
understandable—Graham liked them too—but Ulysses was

huffing noises of appreciation. The truck had lost two door
handles this way, and Graham had long since given up
replacing the passenger side mirror.
“You and I are going to have a talk one of these days. You
know this is weird, right?”
Draining his root beer, Graham listened to the volume inside
the diner grow louder. Whose great idea had it been to install a
jukebox? That was just asking the customers to stay even
When Graham rose to his feet, the bull moose swung his
massive head in his direction. Graham went still, partially out
of habit but also from respect for the six-foot span of antlers
crowning the animal’s head. Ulysses considered him for a
moment, then went back to wooing the Dodge. If the paint job
hadn’t already been trashed from this very ritual, Graham
would have winced at the sound of antler scraping along the

edging toward Graham’s truck, phones out as they shared
excited whispers. Graham groaned.
