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:
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.”
