once I walked with elephants
doleful and forlorn
but elephants all the same
we smiled and acted like monkeys
for the cameras
the elephants, not so much

I remember each step
each skip behind acrobats
tall men in hats
and bedraggled clowns
but I always go back
to the elephants’ parade
do they remember me?
