The Flagship of Anti-Poetry — est. 2010

Irrelephant by Guest Bard Kathleen Radigan

Writer's Bio: Kathleen Radigan was a high school student (when she wrote this).  She loves talking to people, reading books, reading people and talking to books.  She also writes music and swings on swings regularly.

Kudos to Kathleen for picking up the Antipoetic gauntlet of poésie sans poète!


The intelligence of elephants

irrelevant, but eloquent

their clumsy sort of elegance

is one of many elements.
And when that wisdom elevates

it’s difficult to celebrate

for once we see our cells relate
thoughts start to accelerate.
Well wisdom seems aristocratic

dusted down from someone’s attic

pulled apart and cleared of static

(fluctuations are erratic).
Oh how we trace the web life spins

parts swept away like bowling pins!

Neither consciousness nor human prints

will never match an elephant's.
