Dungeons, Dragons, and Defenestration

My two friends, Michelle Franklin and Ciara Ballintyne, both asked me to write poems tonight. Michelle had lost her D20 dice in Dungeons and Dragons. Naturally, she was rather choked up and asked if I could help her with a poem. My other friend Ciara had previously given me a wonderful idea for a poem called Ode to Somewhat. I asked if she had more and she came up with defenestration, or throwing someone out a window.

glowing numbers
rolling red like
dragon fire in
a cave where
we keep warm.

Defenestration

curls fighting
urges of
defenestration
twisting new emotions
into old intelligence.
