War & Peace

An unlikely pair —
      idealistic elephant
            and competitive puma.

I remembered you fondly.

You, the unspoken truce,
      reminding warring generations
            to behave, to be friends,
                  and not belabor being unloved.

I remembered you fondly,
but now only fondly remember
remembering.

All that remains is a broken tail,
tucked away in an unmarked envelope —
      away in my closet with dusty skeletons
      and pairs of pants two sizes too small.
