The Secret Life of Elephants
on tv in silence
the secret life of elephants with their
wrinkles in the driest mood of gray
stumbling, beasts too large for reality beneath
an even larger sky, across the plains on
their stumpy pillars
did you know elephants can swim
dot dot dot the tvs are blurred
down the aisle between the passengers
i’m behind the passenger who was
so nonchalant about holding up
the one who waited
for her to board, she is
the restless one, she doesn’t
know how to sit still or
to live without
she often calls the flight
attendant who is free to move
around but is annoyed of
the too many people who
are always needy always
i fell asleep, in the murmur behind
the wing with the one yellow
light on the tip,
but it felt more like deadness
than resting, it was
not worth it
