The Elephant Who Could Have Been Pink is destroyed in a First Grade Classroom by Taryn Spencer

I didn’t have a grey crayon

and

I could not envision
Them
Existing

Grey

In their bodies
They live
Copiously

Openly

Through flourished
Thuds

They stomp
Olive plains
In herds
Graceful

Amongst mangy hyenas
Amongst curious jaguars

While cultivating thoughts Of cooling
Sweaty trunks in magical waters-

In between a world of Colorful lives hued in blues and greens-
Shunning jungle disputes and dull human beings

As for you

Depriving me of a creative moment
Of a haunting vision that danced
In my head

Like ballroom girls
In the midst of Eden.
