Three Bonus Poems that Don't Suck

Hi Friends,

The good people at The Gloria Sirens have posted three of my poems as part of their horror-themed October. Check 'em out if you'd like to, and then spend some time poking around. They do good stuff over there...

1. being on day 3 of a 3-day work binge
2. not having to wake up to an alarm tomorrow morning
3. coffee
4. maybe a little time to read
5. how I always say "not having to wake up to an alarm" instead of "sleeping in" because it makes me feel better about the fact that I can pretty much never sleep in

Five Things that Don't Suck, Monster Movie Poem Acceptance Day Edition

1. Lon Chaney
2. Lon Chaney, Jr.
3. James Whale
4. Colin Clive
5. all the ingenues

For all you non-poets out there, it's tough to place a big batch of poems, tough to place any poems about movies that were made almost 100 years ago, tough to find anyone at all who really understands them. This morning, I found an editor who really, really gets them--and is getting five of them at once. Yay!
