Dennis L. Siluk

He lives within the deep
Where others never sleep—
Monstrous fathoms below,
Below, where lava rivers flow,
And crowding waters gush.

He is the nightmare demon
Lo, with a flat un-traversable form—
Laying in a bottomless tomb,
Un-doomed, haply waken,
Awaiting ones slumber.

Note: This poem was inspired by the CAS's picture, Nightmare; Written by the author right after the purchase of the original picture From Tom Strausky, who purchased it through G. de la Ree, about [?] 1980, from his estate?
