Occupation: Dragonslayer
a fable for our times

 

 

GIL (the Rescue Worker):
All day working the pile
As you're able, and as you must.
Don't dare think what you're breathing.
All God's children...
That God's unholy bastards turned to dust.
 


  

JENNY (the Waitress):
This cute boy from class,
Working a temp job --
He hated that temp job --
I saw his name.
 

 

 

 

 

 

THE FORGOTTEN ONE (the Survivor):
I knew someone,
Closing my eyes,
A feeling of loss that I cannot erase.
I see his face.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

THE DUCHESS (the Witness):
Don't go up the stairs,
There's a dragon up the stairs.
 

-- But you wouldn't listen....

 


 CHRIS (the Dragonslayer): 
It was a sky-of-blue September day
I didn't understand the snow that lay
Upon the ground.  A shroud of aching dust
To mark the sacrifice...the end of trust....
