Submarine Dragon

The missile compartment of a Boomer
Is painted blood-orange.
The missile tubes are paired
Like thick, meaty ribs
With a spinal passageway.
A single missile
Would ignite horror
Like the spreading shadow of dragon wings.
The city-sized flame
Awakens other dragons,
Kindling the whole face of the earth.
