An Excerpt:

 

alive and aware as the light comes in rising to the sound of the morning drum it’s plantation time

 

all of us working extra hard

 

they said we’d have bigger shares this year

 

if we did good

 

we wanted to try

 

I look to my mom and dad still sleeping

 

their hands calloused

 

their skins toughened

 

catching that last extra minute of shut eye

 

before they come

 

 

 

the light darkens

 

their snouts silhouette the shadows

 

scaly reptilian eyes and angel wings gaze down on them

 

he (she/it?) knows

 

for just a second there was mercy

 

then justice reared its ugly dragon head

 

and roared

 

time to get to work

 

 

my job is on top the watchtower

 

I watch the skies for weather

 

we cannot work in rain and hail

 

if I see a cloud I clang the bell

 

easy peasy and important

 

two dragons guard me from below

 

wielding their sticks of flame they look up

 

making sure I do what I’m told

 

I would’ve anyway

 

I wanted that extra bit of honey

 

I wanted to feel the crunch of blackberries

 

I would be good until harvest time
