DRAGON RED

 

As the dizzy glow of aftermint

comes the touching wording from a rapper

it’s too noisy to make sense of it

too long to be short about it

just enough to be firm while on it

and just enough riot to make it clear.

 

 

You breathe the dragon’s breath

and the atmosphere of the street

wafts through windows and doorways

softening tones with opiate dread

circles under the eyes betray

the wasting waiting time.
