Strong Verse

In keeping with the Orson Scott Card theme of the previous post, did you know this best selling author also publishes a poetry ezine?  Strong Verse publishes new poetry every 3 days by various authors, including a few by Card himself.

Here is part of a poem called “Blood Sucker” by Catherine E. Bollinger:

“And Mama,
she was a spider,
fat and happy in the center of her web.
Now and then, to amuse herself,
she’d pluck a strand, and watch us
struggle to hold on.”

  1. If Bollinger’s childish poem is an example of what Boomers are penning these days, it’s no wonder 1 in 8 is likely to come down with Alzheimer’s. Mr. Card must be in sad need of poets if he considers that to be art.
