My Dragon


My dragon
he hides from me.

He lives somewhere
in the deep
recesses of my mind.

He steals from me
the grouchies
and replaces me with
golden belly laughs.

He is a dickens
he knows what I am
going to do even before
I do.

He trips me up
and breathes a little fire
in my direction.

He evaporates my water
glass in the middle of the night.

He snores and wakes the dead.

He eyes me with gemstones
and he keeps my credit card
operating against my will.

My dragon he has supplied me
with many baubles
and watches over them.

My husband hates my dragon.
He thinks he is a nusiance.
