sun a liquid hexagram   serene watering way
a roam thru misty golden pearl tiny dragon mouths
the fire a gem flicker the sequined spin of spiders
n silkworms so golden in this dew
on yr fine cheeks
as alabaster  a jade blush
an emerald eye a flower
I open my mouth wide   haaaa  and a sssss
breath escapes over teeth pulled back5
in a beautiful espionagic grin and snarl of delight
demon a glimmer a turn on a small bit of water
hanging aglisten off this still and serene leaf

tiny dragon mouths bite my body
slight flickers of fire
along the delicate curled petal
of yr chinese flower …

tiny dragon
