Engaging demon,

Caught dreaming, 



Rapid movement,

Teeth snapping, 



Couldn’t perceive,

Dragon’s burning,


Comatose seeming,

Monster gleaming

    Do we ever catch a dragon unawares? And despite the dragon’s size, it’s fast. And, well, deadly, too. Engrossing depiction of this encounter. Makes me wonder if the poems ends where the speaker, you know, ends.

    Engaging, intertwining use of rhyme with consonants and vowel sounds (interplayed). Thank you!

      Thanks again. The dragon is a human, this makes him all the more dangerous. That he is seen as a dragon and viewed in that light.
