mr. elephant

your vulnerability

is the cuddliest

part of you

that I pamper most

and the weakest

side of you

that I guarded most

but mr. elephant,

you are so big

that even with my

arms outstretched

I could not possibly

protect you

from all sides

lest

you are prepared

to stomp

that tiny mouse

out from your life..
