Vicar-ious Verse at!

In addition to being a formidable force in the world of Mad Movie criticism and the Theology of Ancient Video Formats, your ever-lovin' Vicar also dabbles in the literary arts.

I bring all this up because my free-verse poem, "Haunt," has just been published by the online journal ChiZine (aka Chiaroscuro; as part of their spooky Halloween issue. Those interested in literature and the Vicar as a person can check it out by clicking on the link below:

Comments are invited and welcomed, so long as they're made up entirely of unqualified praise. ;)

The same quill that regularly pens contemplations on the fine distinctions between genres of the undead, and so vividly expresses unbridled excitement over a burly Spaniard’s portrayal of the first-ever hunchback to get laid onscreen, also scribes such sensitive ruminations on the agony of lost passion? Who knew? You’re truly a Renaissance man.
Totally dug that last stanza, BTW.

Thanks for reading though, and for your continued support!
