and still, she is writing about smallish dragons

because she can feel their hot breath on her
neck, the weight of their scales and talons

in the tresses of her hair. they’ve got a thou
-sand whispered things, and she is but one pen

-dulum, swinging. they’ve got teeth to tease her,
sacred fire to please her, and she’s got time.
