A post from my writer friend Alvin Orloff reminded me that today is Edgar Allan Poe's 210th birthday. (Love Alvin's suggestion that his face should be on the one dollar bill.) And then Janice Leagra, a writer on Twitter, unearthed and posted the weird lyric piece on Poe that I published in THREADCOUNT (she says she just ran across it for the first time, in a moment of cosmic serendipity), so I'll post it here. I am a diehard Poe fan.
"Fyodor Translates Edgar Translates the Universe," THREADCOUNT
Lots of nice twitter response to "The Red Ball," including praise from Kathy Fish, which always bowls me over. Can't wait for her online flash class in February.
I have some Poesque flashes, and lots of dark ones. Funny that the lightest flash I've published in a long time should be on his birthday.
