an elephant in the room

a bright pink elephant has plodded
slowly out of it zoo enclosure
past all the zoo visitors
past the zoo keepers to
(it had to slightly bow its head
as it exited the zoo gates)
it dodged traffic
that does not stop for the wondrous sight
as it crossed the street
to the square opposite
there, the elephant flexed it’s knees
and jumped
jumped so high, high above the zoo
it’s shadow like that of a cloud scudding across the city
no one is startled (or hurt)
as it landed, deftly, at my doorstep
it plodded further, through the door
squeezing itself up my stairs
and comes slowly, silently, into the room
as we share a hesitant kiss
