Steely Mammoths

Post by mnaz » April 19th, 2015, 1:40 pm

Outside the Big Box,
mammoths roam the asphalt oceans.
Gluttonous gladiators trundle and graze.
Their skin bulges like steel hillocks;
their grilles are mad dinosaur teeth.
They are rugged, thirsty warriors
bred to conquer stoplight grids.

Love!
And above me the stars align
But not yet with my own
And the night birds sing
Whilst the demon haunts this restless soul.

the steel jungle is made of plastic
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

Thanks all. The proliferation of these beasts really dawned on me when I lived in Vegas for awhile (maybe they just stood out more against all of that beige stucco sprawl . . . What was that figure again? 18 barrels of oil per minute? Something like that? ... It boggles ...

But to place it in thought and in creation. Treasure for those of us who've read it. Thank you!
