For fun this summer, I’ve been writing poems about my favorite Universal monster movies. I’ve already covered a few FRANKENSTEIN movies and the Bela Lugosi DRACULA (1931).
Up today it’s THE WOLF MAN (1941), a film that continues to get better with age, one that is widely considered today to be the best werewolf movie ever made.
Here are a few poems inspired by this movie, once again, using the Fibonacci form.
“Even a Man Pure in Heart”
a man who
says prayers by night
becomes a wolf, the moon full, bright.
“Sir John Talbot”
Own fight, son.
These people have a
problem. Why would I want a cane?
“The Advice of a Father”
Complex Things. In a
Man’s Mind Anything Can Happen.
no fault of your own.
My Bela, now you will find peace.
You think I
don’t know the difference
between wolf and man? You’re insane!
this. A werewolf bit
me. Why won’t you all believe me?
“Larry and Gwen”
full. I turn
into a wolf. I
could harm even you. Go away!
Hope you enjoyed these poems, which are pretty much just my re-working quotes from the movie into poetic form. They’re fun to write, and hopefully they’re fun to read.
On that note, as always, thanks for reading!
Like “Advice” best… works knowing or not-knowing the film!
