INKTOBER 2019: Day 12. Dragon

Oh, how the tables have turned.

The Dragon Feast

Sick of eating only sour carp and nasty sturgeon–
The dragon went in search of tasty virgins.
He thought he had found a smorgasbord–
But instead was devoured by a virgin horde!

  1. Loved the poem Rook, but I find the picture sad in a way maybe because I love dragons. Nothing against your creative genius, just shows how my brain works.
    As I look at the picture, I see the young devouring wisdom, something that we all crave to do in our lifetimes.

    Running deep, its me.🙄

    1. I originally thought of it as a snub at the virgin/whore dichotomy in which representations of female sexual agency overtake a symbol of phallic domination.

      But the great part about letting the image stand as itself so that the viewer can participate in the creation of the symbolism. I would never have thought of your interpretation. Thanks for sharing!
