Elephant In The Room - Poem by Stanley Canfield

Trying to talk, to listen, to understand
Something breathing loudly in our ears
muffles
Something looming largely in our eyes
distracts
The thump thump thump of a tail on the floor
The scrape of tusks on the wall
We are nuzzled by the all pervasive trunk
And the smell of hay
O
By the way
Have I introduced you to Naree?
