Over Clad Dragons

Over clad dragons with each spoken word pepper each other with exhaust from the fire pot within

Squatty limbs attach at the hip to form hollow wings never able to provide flight

Modestly hidden horns lay beneath stocking caps and sloping hats

Distance is kept from such confident dragons -- the only ones on the block
Only with each other can the heat of conversation be borne

Scurrying past
Eyes lowered
I nurture my own fire within
