The Elephant in the Room – A Poem

The elephant in the room

has been pregnant for 

days

months

year 

inverted in inner labor

keeping the seed from the cycle of life

inside, far from coming out 

Their moon grows 

new

half, 

then full.

The elephant can only stay pregnant for so long

until she pops.
