Her spider legs slip out from
Under the covers.
Wielding her straighter sword.
Pull on her short-short armor,
Tank top chain mail
Oblivious to the dragon that watches.
Doesn’t se the stares as she walks
The rhythm of every step
Contained in her flip-flop drum.
Flip
Flop.
And she marches off
A lamb to the slaughter
One foot in front of another.
