We hope you enjoy her work!

What Should I Be Today?

I’d like to be a pterodactyl,

wind holding my naked form

between the waters.

Or else a dragon,

talons clothed in treasure,

caressing sky into submission.

But there’s always someone chasing us,

and you can’t shift

as I do.

So I must be a car instead,

exploding tamely, carrying you.
