Brain Elves

The elves inside my brain
are ten feet tall and bent on destruction
the kind of destruction
you only get in fast-food restaurants
and karaoke bars

they sit together in the noir light slanting
through the window blinds of desire
and make snide comments about my use
of the Oxford comma
and my problematic hair

slay the elves of mixology
defeat the elves of good credit ratings
punch the elves of musical disharmony
slap the elves of timber wolves
gently chastise the elves of elves

the heat death of the universe
will come and go
without really affecting
the elves
inside my brain
