a one line poem in response to this prompt by Michael Stalcup for Chalkboard

Cousin of the dragon — photo, courtesy of Pixabay

If, instead of a sage cabinet greeting under blinky eyelids at sunrise 
you faced a pacing, emerald-scaled dragon tracking claws over 
that familiar dip of worn linoleum, would you 
high-tail it before coffee scorched, 
or ask if he prefers cream & sugar?
