Scary Book Month
Another scary thing: I am speaking in lists and sentence fragments. This is probably due to reading too many books simultaneously.
If only we hadn't knocked down the barn.
And buried it.
True story. Recorded in a poem, "Gambrels of the Sky," Poetry East, Fall 2012. I think it can be said that everything that ever happened to me or was witnessed by me somehow makes its way into a poem. And I'm not even a "confessional poet."
a review of Unexplained Fevers by Jeannine Hall Gailey. Unexplained fevers are pretty scary.
And Seana Graham has reviewed Don't Look Now, a book of stories by Daphne du Maurier that includes that one, which was made into the scariest movie ever. I didn't realize that Hitchcock's The Birds was also based on a du Maurier story. There's always so much I don't know. I love learning new things, even if they are old things to some people!
