Last month I shared some poems I’d written inspired by the Universal Frankenstein series. Today we’ll give Dracula equal time.
Here are some poems I’ve written, inspired by the Universal DRACULA series, specifically the original 1931 DRACULA starring Bela Lusosi. Lugosi’s lines, and the haunting way he delivered them, are inspiration in and of themselves.
These poems follow the Fibonacci form.
“Children of the Night”
of the night.
What Music They Make.
Blood is the life, Mr. Renfield.
Must be glorious!
Far worse things await man than death.
All red blood!
Millions of them! All
These will I give you! Obey me!
Will like it.
But aren’t you drinking?
No, Renfield. I never drink— wine.
“Van Helsing’s Wisdom.”
that people will not
believe in him. Nosferatu!
Nosferatu, indeed! Hope you enjoyed these poems, which really are based on real quotes and dialogue from the movie, tweaked into a poetic format, specifically, the Fibonacci form.
As always, thanks for reading!
First and last are my favorites here… the last having resonance with our current socio-political environment!
