Blood Ivory

african_bush_elephant_by_pittumcflurry-d5pw7ej

Skins black souls white
pure, as ivory
from the deserts of Africa
crooked, drenched in red
blood dripping
on a little broken toe
its shattered bones wrapped
by meager flesh and cracked skin.

Stale air lays bare
from under the dust
a rusty bullet.
