Opium Cactus: paper dragons (with audio)



blue & yellow folded paper dragons
sail away in an indigo Tintenfaß
dragons dangerous yet delicate
for they cannot breathe fire
and live


(c) Nissa Annakindt


Poem #4. The word 'Tintenfaß'--- German for inkwell--- is particularly fine, adding that needed note of strangeness. From
Where the Opium Cactus Grows

Shared in Poetry Pantry #86

I love this poem. It makes me want to close my eyes and imagine an entire story to go along with it.
