PAPER ELEPHANTS

Your desk is lined with scores of lovers
chest to chest, billowing trunks
entwined. They come in every color. They come
drunk on merry, forgetting how
their lovely heft collapsed the bridge
of string you built between
our hearts. One lay broken open on that desk. One
hopelessly shredded by the cat. Though,
our paper tickers are come & gone. Those fat elephants are
still marching marching marching on.
