Default Happy Elephant Appreciation Day!!

Pink Elephants

A tipsy lady told me once
some facts about pink elephants—
how worrisome it is to know
pachyderms will come and go:

Try not to think of them when glum
or pinkish elephants will come.
The more one sighs or cries or fusses,
the more one sees a pink proboscis!

She added, apropos their dance,
Whatever hue the elephants,
they’re tasty treats (now please, don’t quibble),
but start your feast with one small nibble.


Though gone, she trumpets in my mind.
Her rosy breasts and pink behind
still whet my lingering appetite
to savor memories, bite by bite.
