TOP 100 Books Collected by a Dragon

Welcome to Dragons Den’s 100th post!

To celebrate this monumental occasion, I have collected a list of my top 100 books. Each book on the list is a book that 1) I own, 2) has had a positive impact on my life, and 3) belongs in everyone’s den of books. This list is broken down into categories and is by no means the whole of my personal library. You can check out most of these books at your local bookstore or from the author’s websites.

Comics: 

Poetry

Fiction

Nonfiction

Misc. (I.E. I wanted to include these just because I love them so.)

Where Trees Fall

Where Trees Fall

Rich nutrients are locked away in fallen trees.
A treasure awaits release in fallen trees.

I harvest corpses: redwood, sycamore, pine, oak.
I cobble together tables from fallen trees.

Bay windows lined with birch watch the canopy wave.
An artificial forest without fallen trees.

Without coarse woody debris the cycle is halt-
edited out dried leaves, fungus spores, fallen trees.

Where trees fall, new growth, one life brings forth a thousand
a nebula, cradle, crafted from fallen trees.

We Are Children

We Are Children

a tantrum
a fit
an explosion
of expression
from 2 years
of life
and I
breathe in
and out
in
and out
in
and
out
for you
and me

I will
your flame
to shorten
make it smaller
I demand
and yet
with each inhale
with each exhale
I wish to ignite
and flare out
with you
for we both
are tiny
specks of
cosmos
filled with
large
crashing atoms
and this
this responsibly
feels
to much to bare.

What I always wanted to Say . . .

What I always wanted to Say . . .

What I always wanted to say to you lied underneath lake pebbles.

What I always wanted to say got tangled in water lily roots.

What I always wanted to say seeped down deep beneath grim and sand.

What I always wanted to say was stirred up by an earthquake.

What I always wanted to say got swallowed by a catfish.

What I always wanted to say was mixed with bile.

What I always wanted to say was fried up.

What I always wanted to say was served with hush puppies.

What I always wanted to say was dipped in tartar sauce.

and swallowed by your lovely lips.
