The Elephant and Rhino Pavilion by Zoe Buckton

Spotlights cast echoes

Yellow glazed herbivores

Thunderous steps grace the stage

Animals of leather, deceptive age

Ears swing

Horns protrude from concrete with dull lining

Miniature figures writhe

Making their way to the front of the tide

In glass, reflected

Tree trunk feet plod

Back and forth.

Beasts have come to meet
