Poem by Mallory Smart


Elephant’s Manufactured Moon

tonite you’re my meandering moon-madein-
china and I do not think that I ever want to stop kissing you

even though I am in fact just a baby elephant
quenched by the marrow of today’s regret

tonite I will kiss you
and tomorrow I will do it again

the day after you will disappear
and promise you’ll comeback

but tonite I will kiss you
tonite I will kiss you
