still air

the street
so quiet now

nothing

not a breath
of air

so still
it almost feels
a solid thing

somewhere
north and west
of here
there is dragon breath
lying red
across the land

they tell me
it is coming my way

close
and even closer

the air will move
when it comes
they say
the air will burn
then
I
as smoke
will rise
twisting
in a plume of blue

and grey

wait
I will wait
for
after all
it may never shape
to happen

and the street
outside
is quiet now

the air
is solid
and
so still
