On the Side of the Tide

The leviathan
And the dragon are among
The many animal words

For pretending intention
And agency in monsters
That are only things.

If I embrace the dragon,
It’s because dragons are streams,
Leviathans are oceans,

And I know the heroic
Storm gods and winged immortals
Are our way of picking sides

Of endless waves to favor.
Waves have no sides or saviors.
