                   Elephant in the Room    

           Articles, Poems & Stories by Phoenix Fire! 

        (Lige Dailey Jr., Phavia Kujichagulia & Robert Woods)

​   The intruding reality of elephants in any room should be difficultfor

anyone to ignore long. That’s why the popular expression “elephant

in the room” is metaphorically used to refer to enormous problems,

issues, and contradictions we all know exist, yet commonly ignore,

deny, minimize, and/or rationalize for personal comfort and con-

venience. Likewise, Elephant in the Room is a timely volume of

     literature (poems, articles, and stories) that creatively, yet

     analytically examines the looming problems that typically

           clutter our lives and compromise our happiness. 

Elephant in the Room is a must read. I had to buy this book as a gift for all my family and friends.”
