Poe-try

Bubbe and Grandpa Stu gave us a terrific and apt gift for Hanukah: magnetic poetry, Edgar Allan Poe edition. If you haven’t seen magnetic poetry, they are kits full of flat magnets printed with one word apiece, in this case words particularly appropriate for Poe, such as crepuscular, crypt, dread, amontillado, kiss, dark . . .

They arrive in sheets that one has to break apart, so there were some found poems just in the unbroken sheets. I liked

dusk
half
truth
lost
soul.

Mookie found:

dream
within
dream

and some others. Now she is creating Poe-like poetry on the fridge.

These are two separate poems:

Thanks for the inspiration, Mom, Stu, and Edgar!
