The Elephant in the Room

The Elephant in the Room

Off in a corner
in the midst of a mid-town cocktail party,
sits a shy young lady with a small animal
Wrapped in a muff,
Sitting on her lap.

It is a tiny elephant.
No one notices.

Nor do they notice the herd of 18-ton elephants in the room,
thundering through the room,

demonic forces, Issued forth from one’s sister-in-law on a visit:


She is the one of us most desperately hurt.
