Time With Extended Family, a poem

Holidays are almost here

It's time to show your relatives how you've spread your wings

And how you've flared your spines

How you flex your talons

How you stoke the flames in your chest

Until they're ready to spill past your fangs and engulf everything around you

While you stand untouched by the inferno

And laugh

Or you could just stay home

And read a book

Perhaps a cup of tea?

Tea would be nice

After all, you don't owe them anything

There's no reason

To emerge from your lair

Unless you want to
