Stretch for it!


Something symbolic about an elephant
in Berlin Zoo trying to get across
to the other side. It’s a stretch
to the green stuff, the good meal,
but hasn’t it always been ?
What do we ever do but stretch
ourselves on the rack
of desires, of necessity?
Remember kindergarten, when
teachers told us to stand
and wiggle our fingers
toward the stars, or sitting
in the backseat of a VW?
Lodovico Michelangelo on his back
in the Sistine Chapel and
Bob Beamon and Ludwig Beethoven –
What did they do but stretch?
