A new collection of recent narrative poems concerning Love, Death, and Horror. Soon available on Amazon (lost in the endless self-published poetry books all teeming there).
My novella is up on Amazon. It is a revised version of a novella I published in my 2017 collection “Strange Hours”, which I am embarrassed to say was flawed with infrequent typos and hanging sentences. I will have a free giveaway for it sometime soon. Poe meets Lovecraft meets Douglass in this tale of Southern Gothic Horror.
Fly away on my flapping wings
to many fanciful, far-fetched things,
whether hard-spined or flexibly soft,
I will hold you safely aloft,
though I may well give you the chills
with the turbulence of my thrills,
it is all for the sake of some fun,
or your own education;
yet, when I rest with my catalogued kin
it will be on a cozy shelf, all nestled in,
and singing silently with a tight-lipped voice
of someone else’s preferred choice—
you see, we share a quiet aviary
which some often call a library.
I don’t know which one to use for the cover. Maybe I can use both images, front and back for the book. Originally I had intended to use a watercolor painting, but I wanted this book to have the same aesthetic as my first book of poetry, “Ars Goetia: The Devil’s Advocate” so they look nice on a shelf together.
