A Dragon, Unicorn Fantasy



Once, long before horses

roamed this earth,

Unicorns, some with tangerine coloring,

and Dragons

lived and played,

bringing magic and ethos to the land.

It was also a time

of ice and pain

as humans began

their decent from trees,

whose green leaves

turned placid from the heat.

And the world began to change.


Gone was the ritual of Talking Drums,

of painting beats on cave walls,

of drinking from a blood chalice

to honor the earth.

It’s hard to pinpoint the exact moment

when Dragons disappeared.

Or, when the last Unicorn

sacrificed her life

in a vain attempt to keep magic alive.


Sometimes though,

from the mournful sounds

of a brass fantasy,

played in some jazz joint

on the lower east side,

the old time magic

of Unicorns and Dragons

can be heard.
