An Argument For Elk

Their feet are wide. They're heavy. They will crush your rigid edges

on their way to your good river. After downpours

you will no longer suffer drowning floods. There will be pools and tributaries, then

ground nesting birds.

But first you must decide to cart them in and they are wild

and heavy. They will crush your rigid edges.

And do you have enough

for them to eat? Is your grass tall? Will it mat for them to sleep; huge and black inside your huge, black night?

Is it time?

Their ribs spread. Your air inside them,

outside. You'll never know

them with your hands. They won't know you. This will will be your new devotion:

Bound. Free.
