POETRY WAR: Positively reticent


 “The Elephant’s Child”. from thaifoodandtravel.com

An elephant is relevant

and ultimately confident

when he is in his element

and not within a zoo.


The human is irrelevant

a city-dwelling occupant

who locks himself inside cement

within his high-rise zoo.


From landofsnows.com

Perspective is incipient

learned in the crib with reticence

a helpless mass of innocence

dependent from the start.


An elephant knew how to run

the moment that his life begun

so which of us is truly free…

the elephant or me?
