Floating Ladders1
By Jackie Joice
(For Darren and Naomi)

My dagger is displayed in plain sight
It’s no secret that it’s strapped to my side
It never dulls or lacks its shine
because this world is forever dangerous
And I will slay and gut a dragon to protect a child
my child
or a friend
because they mean that much to me.
