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
