The Elephant and the Albatross

Written by: Liza Salmon

She chases her tail
She listens for his breathing
She hears each his lies
She hears each his lies
His false shadow, painted skin
Listen, quiet, still
Blue feathers, hidden
Glory birds, gold and orange
Listen, quiet, still
She hears each his lies
Monkeys running through the trees
Listen, quiet, still
She chases her tail
Drying paint on native skin
 She runs through the green
Hark, the calls of birds
Drying paint on native skin
She chases her tail
