The Mexican Elephant

The Mexican elephant
stays close to pyramids,

rubs its face
against volcanos,

plays hide and seek
with lava.

He does not wonder
what happened to the Mayans.

He does not blame La Malinche
for not being an elephant.

And when he sees
La Llorona's tears,

his big gray ears
ignore her plight.

The Mexican elephant can not think,
it only remembers.

Words blend with the stars and the oceans and the mountains cry for the kisses of the rain clouds passing far away.

Great Writing Compa!
