The Seahorse



Dragons exist.

The chimera kind -

Black horse is

Fused dragon is

Pastel pink fish.


All creatures is he -

Bones and fin,

Fire-shape without

The flame

A crowned yellow silver

And maneless green

Spiked curve of the



His tail holds on to reality,

Straight lines of grass

Rooted in the sea bed

To keep him

From floating into myth,

Beside Poseidon.
