Two New Poems by Zack Ford

“Meeting in the Elevator Pt. 1: Crossbreeding”

Elevator music
Love flows through the notes
Her feel
Shocking the coyote’s feel
If only he was human
Coyote thinks
If only this coyote wasn’t a creep
Sacagawea thinks
Fourteenth floor

“The Life & Times”

The elephant was on Ritalin
He was failing school
So Ms. Teacher Elephant said
That’s the answer
So momma elephant drugged up her son
So elephant started doing Ritalin
But it didn’t help
So he dropped out of school
Sold his Ritalin
Spent all his money on peanuts
5 years pass
Found dead in a gutter with shells littering his trunk
Good recommendation teacher elephant
