dragon v elephant

dragon slayer

dragon slayer?

dragon slayer!

i am not a killer of imagination
nor would i hunt
an elephant

i would not chase the abstract
since
there is no such thing
-since there is always something to see

dragon slayer.

with an ‘a’ or an ‘e’

give me the
‘e’

let me spin a yarn
travel through east abbey
tell you how the dragon lives
how the elephant sleeps soundly

how

in

the paint splatter – i see rain during a May afternoon
dancing off petals along the plain road west of a burlington
botanical garden
