The Elephant in the Yard

With your flowery ears

And your trunk in the air

The art on your skin so revealing


I cannot ignore you

It seems you’ve always been there

It’s my gaze from the road you keep stealing


Today I just stopped

Because your house is for sale

And so soon I’m quite sure you’ll be gone


Damn! I caught myself hoping

Expecting your presence

Would greet me every day from that lawn
