fast and graceful, taking in the air around us all.
His wings are paper thin and delicate.
Her arms are thin and delicate too.
and at first she doesn't believe
but then i see faith swell up
like waves fierce, she goes and...
is a him and i tell her i don't
and then she asks if they bite and
i tell her not as hard as her brother...
a tamer of dragonflies;
she takes him into her world
and she tucks him tightly in her heart for second split
and then, just as quickly as flesh touched scales,
he lets her go and flies into the blue.
