It's been a long while since I've seen a dragonfly.
They were always my tiny companions
when I was fishing off the side of the boat,
green ones, blue ones, and little fiery-red ones.
With their big heads, they reminded me
of helmeted helicopter pilots.
This one, however, nearly smacked me in the head
this morning as I walked to the store.
I looked in my dragonfly book
but couldn't find one like him in the pictures,
so I can't say what kind of dragonfly he be,
but I bet he's not from "uncharted territory."
