Tiamat's Equatorial Stars

Dennis L. Siluk

Beneath the equatorial stars
Where once, warriors
Turned their eyes, to the deep, deep
Into the deep green sea:

Lays a hovering legend—called,
The Tiamat, wicked and terrifying.

Waiting—frightfully waiting
Are these ancient eyes:
For the gigantic bulk—
Of a demigod, to reappear.
