The Elephant House at London Zoo

All day we have been
At the elephant house
Watching these giants trying to move
An elephant in the wild
Occupies 100 square miles of territory;
Here they are fitted into an architecture
Moulded to their shape
But solidfying, regidifying, atrophying.
At night we go home
On the bus or the tube
Our homes of convenience
Our own little cage in London Zoo.
