It’s Queer, Yet True

When spring tingles
the blood of each tree
and the cold of crystal streams
begins to warm,

dragons creep from the shadows
that soften the hollows
between their mountain crags
and, like cats, slink beneath
the pine limbs,

scouring each branch
for a robin’s nest
that harbors a clutch of eggs
as blue as sky and hope
to scratch a touch of that paint,

with claw or fang,
so they might remember
what beauty is when their hearts
rage with poison and flame.
