Komodo Dragon
Allen Qing Yuan


Staring menacingly at all observers
You being the greatest observer of all

Claws scraping the loose earth
Scaly tail weaving through the sky

Rocky exterior grinding rock
Squinty eyes seeing all

And you wonder
What more is beyond this glass?

Love the visual I get of the dragon and I do wonder what else is behind that glass. Maire
