Of Cats and Dragons

My door has only ever yielded ambushed cats
and sick skies.
There is no home beyond it
because home is happiness
unannounced and dreams
that are already asleep.

It is a small fame to be wondered about
when dragons exist in clans alongside
highways.
Reciprocal, is the knock from outside
that wants to come in.
My skin.
