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!
