Pachyderms

 
On the cross of time
moments crossed
dimly lit in the alleys
when turning the corners

in the corners of darkness
elephants
that nobody sees
so white

the elephants
and their sinister frankness
..................gray
the elephants

with its immense difficulty
to fold the napkins
and shave eyebrows
in the dark...

elephants are huge
cast giant shadows
have wide flat feet
and lots of love for shoes

elephants bother
with their bodies flashy
in the soft memories
of stupid children's faces

the elephants know
many and diverse people
so if not a friend
must be a relative.

such lonely animals
take up lots of space
but they cannot hide
as there are no closets.

mess with everything and everyone
want to be part of history
but get lost in the conversation
and do not retain memory.

cover the view and the landscape
and scream with hysteria
they wanted to be butterflies
but this no one knew...

are so gray and brown
they are so slow and silly
they always think they already have
what was never given to them.

always have opinions
intentions to bump
they look like clouds in the wind
but rain, which is good, nothing!

pretend to be interested
pretend they are helping
but if they can be on credit...
the others are going to work.
