One- Phrase Raven

When the name, emerging from

Gothic candle shadows,

Became familiar,

It all started to

Shuffle into place:

A time, a plot, a face.

The garrulous

Be afraid parrot

Becoming the One-phrase raven.

No surprises there.

So … why am I

Going back to that well?

    Very intruiging piece, it makes the reader think of a story or connect the dots.

      Thank you, have just been reading the novel, The American Boy … this piece (hardly a poem) came from that.
      Do you know the book?

        I heard of the book yes, but it is unavailable in my country, both the riginal version aswell as translations. I always admire foreigners, for their vast access to books!

    Sorry for eavesdropping on your comments, but i must agree, Poe is superb.
