What the Dragon Said: A Love Story Reviews

    I return to this piece every few months for a re-read (and yes, this is one of those things I read aloud to myself). The language is as rich and dense as high-grade chocolate, but filled with bits of yearning and pain and raw-hollow hunger. It’s a poem about dragons, but it’s also a poem about telling the stories bubbling inside you even when you feel inadequate to the telling. Every time I read it, I lose a bit of myself and take away something new.My newest realization, which prompted me to leave this review, is that by her own internal logic, Valente uses the line 'you'll never fix that line' to not finish the poem, and in so doing leaves an out so that the Dragon doesn't die at the end. Or at least, that's today's reading. I've been obsessed with tanka, pivot lines, and kintsugi recently, so it seems relevant to that.

    This is one of those pieces that rips a hole in you and forces you to keep coming back to collect bits of yourself.

    Loved it. A fantastic little poem written from the point of view of a dragon.

    When I first found this I read it several times a week. I didn't realize it was here on goodreads to review. It's a poem written from the Dragons point of view. Beautifully done. It's a free read on Tor.http://www.tor.com/stories/2012/04/wh..."Don’t you ever feellike you’re justa story someone is tellingabout someone like you?"

    This was very entertaining and cute. I like this dragon with her large words and her hunger. (:I read this for free on Tor.com. (: It is a poem told from the viewpoint of a dragon talking to a knight.

    Very short and all the more perfect because of it, though I could read so much more of this.
