betaal

Was I dreaming all this while
Was it just a trick of the light
An optical illusion perhaps
that I failed to notice
that leathery creature
hanging from your back

I see it clearly now
the claw-tipped wings
the serpent’s tail
and the all too human head
waiting, waiting, all this while
for you to utter the word.
