They Come Out at Night
Response

What Poe Might Have Creatively Interpreted Had He
Been Born
Some 50 Years Later and Known Something
of Whitechapel

By Annmarie Lockhart
Inspiration piece

fog and coal dust
and so many people
out still among the living
cheating, stealing, trading
with no sense that Death
stalks the gaslit
puddles and footfalls
or maybe they prefer
to whistle in the graveyard
pretending to be
impregnable
in nightlight
and in absinthe
or maybe this is
the way they want to be
remembered

    This is one of your best collaborations. The imagery presented by both the poet and the artist is breath taking.
