Already Here

Already Here

A Poem by Elephant Noses

I need no introduction,

For I’m already here

I’m already in your house,

My face on your TV screen


No introduction necessary

I’m already with your family at Christmas,

Teaching your children

About the birds and the bees,

The Reagan Administration,

How to build planes from paper.


No need to say

Hello,

How do you do?

I’m already in your bed,

Touching your leg with my foot,

Talking to you about things you’ve never told anyone.


I’m already letting you cry like a baby on my shoulder.


No, no need for introductions,

I’m already here. 


I’m outside your door knocking.

If you let me in,

I can kiss you,

I can let you put your arm around me in the dark

If you’d let me,

We can whisper tiny gifts

Back and forth,

Small and quiet so only we can hear.


I can look at your face

And make you tell me what’s wrong

If you’d only catch my gaze,

And give me a smile,


I’m already here.

why do I keep thinking this subtle smooth intruder's name is Media~
there is nothing more chilling then the seduction by something as intangible as pixels creating form to bleed through the rods and cones of the eyes into the brain whispering sweet nothings of this and that~buy this and that~be this and that~
this is one of the reasons I do love the enigmatic quality of creative poetics~ the reader takes from it what he/she needs or recognizes in that moment through personalizing~
