I’m totally a dragon [poem]

if you squint a bit
you can see the truth about me
I am a dragon
my true form hidden inside of
tattooed skin and wild hair
but look
I’ve still got a nest
a pile of pillows and blankets that in no way
resembles a blanket fort
and look
I’ve got a hoard of books and movies
that are definitely as valuable as any mound of gold
and look
I’ve still got wings
a mind alight in flight and
so I don’t really have wings
but still
I swear it’s true
I’m totally a dragon
