Elephant String

They say an elephant
can be controlled
with a piece of string
tied around one leg –
just start early
with hard enough steel.

Before long, it’s all about
eating peanuts,
walking in circles
with strangers on your back
and getting hosed down
for the next day’s show.

Deep in my brain
where I cannot reach,
I hear her whispering
and there is no need for string.

Verse Wisconsin - April 2013
Audio of "Elephant String"
