National Poetry Day Message Poem from a Rhino by Liz Brownlee

Message From a Rhino

.

Who am I,

in the dust

dripping blood,

built like stone

from elephant grass,

and cooled by mud?

.

Who am I,

dripping blood

down my chin,

shot through my

shields of

mosaic skin?

.

Who am I,

dripping blood,

face hacked and sawn?

Who am I,

who am I,

without my horn?

.
