Love me.

Seeds scattered
on the near side
of the end of earth.
Came up all boys.
She wanted girls
to wrap her taloned
claws around.

A dragon loomed
over a garden
where weeds abound
and tender shoots
find no sweet spot
in which to root.

In a pyre
of dragon fire.
Dead in all but name
The game
hide and seek.

A survival strategy.
Love me, love me.
