What are dragons? Some believe they are the embodiment of evil, Satan himself. Contradicting that theory, others believe they are a symbol of good luck and royalty. Some believe they were only dinosaurs, and that they never encountered humans at all, though it has been proven false that dinosaurs were extinct before us. And still others believe they are mythical, magical creatures that never existed. But none of these truly tell what dragons are.
The Bible describes Satan as a dragon in Revelation 20:2 KJV He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. </b>This passage leads many people, and most Christians, to believe that all dragons are the embodiment of evil.

fall slipped from her open eyes
and winter crawled in for a long hibernation
to her the clouds looked sick
and pale like they might
let everything inside them out,
but she opened up wide instead,
spilling blood where there was none to be spilled.
her heart slipped down the street
and with unsteady hands
she stitched in a bird and cut off its wings.
