She is a dragon

I’ve been thinking alot this week about an old friend. I’ve talked about her before, her name was Valerie Kojsza. She was in a relationship with our friend Chris Kelly. He wrote this poem about her. Then he crumpled it up and threw it in the trash. I pulled it out.

They’re both long gone, but we have this poem.

She is a dragon, by Chris Kelly

She is a dragon, by Chris Kelly

She is a dragon

blow fire

nobody is watching

death proof

we are all the same

we’re just cartoons  were you cautious

leave the paper at the door

life is clear

I sat down to write something else, but this poem was falling off my shelf so I decided it wanted to be shared. Poems are best when shared.

I always thought it said “we’re just cartoons,” but looking at it now it looks like “were you cautious,” which, no, we weren’t.

Maybe a little.
