hannibal

It is possible

the historians tell us

to witness first hand

the flattened paths

where Hannibal

his army

the elephants

ground their way over the alps

the will to do this

determination

character

& the insight to connect

Geography over distance

& those elephants

strange fish

out of stranger waters

& I wonder

as I do

of the fertility of that route

the following spring

& the strange plants

that grew in their wake
