{March 7, 2018}   Fireless Dragon




Jackie Paper has left.


I crawl like a turtle,

too big and too green

to hide,

losing bits of myself


on the pathway

back to my cave.


One last turn of my head

slow and stiff,

to see no one

skipping across

my shadow,

only the lost

pieces of me like

a moat of glass,

glistening colors

in the setting sun

that catch and pierce my eyes,

a simple explanation

for my tears.
