Dragon's Claw:

Far from all I know

Now seeking an enemy

Searching those hills

For one who kills

And burns

One that all mythology


He breaks into the sky

But swoops down toward

Me as I meekly stand


Massive wings of black

Scales that glisten

And shine

Sunlight bouncing

Off this immense beast

He glides down to where

I stand

I hesitate

And because I do

It is too late

Once more he kills

And I am never


As I die

Clenched in

A dragon's claw
