nmillikens favorite websites – StumbleUpon


Having long since sold my soul (for all the junk I now have to pack) I’ve never had much time for poetry. This Stumbler’s efforts, though, I quite like. Particularly the storybook ones based on Cinderella and – in the example below – Snow White. More, please!

in the castle

the servants eavesdropped
when she spoke
to the mirror.

rumors ran
from dungeon
to turret-

“the queen is mad”

soon there was talk
of poison
and apples.

from every kettle
in the kitchen
cats and rats
were fed first.

they grew fat on fear.
