The Knight And Dragon
By Alex Wamba

High above
the brass towers of the sand empire
a lone dragon sails
glittering wings wide
scattering light like diamonds.

The knight rides
thundering hooves
a steed cut from fire
a blade sharper than steel
colder than ice.

When they meet
when the knight reaches the gates
and the dragon drops
to breathe fire
slag sand into glass

When they meet
only one will live
to see night fall
across those brass towers
across the walls
of that sand empire.
