elephants are not invisible

it's not the elephant in the living room.
elephants are not so unusual.

we shovel shit
like we take out the trash
in blurry morning darkness
so the neighbors don't hear
bottles clink.

we try to keep
clean.

but we've seen others.
elephants peaking from under
afghans, coffee tables, hidden
behind art ---
we are many:

it's not the elephant in the living room.
it's that you want to keep him.
