Angelic Dragons: A poem by Leo Jenkins

“Angelic Dragons”
by Leo Jenkins

We need to beat this
Once and for all.
Not sure what it will take or entail
Now
How to defeat this sound
Deafening us all
How to step
With stride unbound
How to break apart
What makes me, me
Discard the pieces unserving
& save the ones worth praising.
Crazy was a place we flew to
On the backs of Angelic Dragons.
