THE BIG WHITE ELEPHANT

WHEN the sun shines it shines upon
my shoulders if I’m not with inside
my four-walled universe at home
so IF under the roof and it has
many shadow turns this heart of
colored flowers for a while in
a brightly window-lit room –I forever
love everybody but me ||if the room
chooses sometimes the curtains fall
enclosing me//but not before this
lovely feeling perishes and there
burns a phoenix bird with red
flamed anger…
and sometimes too a big white
elephant.

So, I sometimes never place a foot
outside my four-walled universe
but nature comes to me — even a
tiger roams here, as in the safari
land, and bears too sometimes
cuddle up to the little girl

And sometimes even the blue whale.

And upon prehistoric dragonflies
I sometimes escape my room
through a dimly lit open window
and see how nice the city fits
inside human minds

but sometimes too, and now and then
big white elephants.
