Elephant This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

when the elephant dies
we must trumpet
trumpet
Trump it.
the ground shakes when it falls
its blood will flow
like water falls
Waterfalls
a melodic tribal dance in his
honor
The lead role fell
on her
On her.
hear the beat, that beats
when they dance
she wore the gray creased skin
on her bare back

This is beautiful! I love the play on words and I can see the elephant in my head!
