DRAGON TALE

Lava boils upon the surface of the sun.
Teeny-bop jelly-pop
Tangles with static.
Irritation stirs a denim slouch
To instigate investigation.

All across the dial, the querulous voices
Suffer the fallout from the surges
Which rise ten thousand miles, then fall, as casual
As a fish feinting at a fly.

The massed land drifts the magma;
Nuclear thunders threaten
Continents of caesura.

The sun burns toward nova;
The moon shifts;
The stars scuttle toward silence;
The seas cool:
And somewhere an insect discovers
The concept of overlord god.

This poem DRAGON TALE was first published in Outrigger Volume Four Number Three, May 1980 (ed. Tim Pickford)(Auckland, New Zealand) (page 94). First appeared online when posted on the zenvirus.com site by Hugh Cook: 2005 May 7 Saturday. Copyright © 1980, 2005 Hugh Cook. All rights reserved.
