All of the Little Goth Girls Love Edgar

                                 by "Twila"

All of the little Goth girls love Edgar.
Shadowy-silvern, his pale, forlorn features.
Lines they revere on old scroll-like ledgers.
Words to enthrall such dear, winsome creatures.
Nervous, aflutter, hearts beat fast, fast--faster.
Truly, 'Ultima Thule' rules--dually:
Image and man are two darksome masters.

Ever a 'soul to soul' night-tide yearning;
Heavens conspire to keep far stars burning.
Radiant Virginia's pure, porcelain presence
Transcends an inked waif's wraith-like essence.
Blackly, do Corvus adorn chatelaine medals.
Truly, 'Ultima Thule' rules--dually:
Visage and verse are what Goth-gear gents peddle.

Even the granny Goths love sweet Edgar.
One, or a few, his rhymes, tales, send shivers.
Oh, they should read essays, well-writ letters--
Witness 'The Tomahawk Man's' blade sliver
Poems 'be-puffed', pied prose, trite tomes--'turkeys'.
Dually, 'Ultima Thule' rules--truly:
Might they now deem him less dark, weird--quirky?
Demon in view, unruly prince--POET.
"Edgar, Forever", purr Goth girls--crow it!

(c. 2014.,Twila-TDB.)


NOTE:  This is a humorous observation regarding the effect of Mr. Poe upon his female admirers, and his "afterlife" as reflected in the adulation, and prolific marketing, of a certain iconic daguerreotype.
