A short little apocalyptic poem.
A story about rich people sequestering themselves away from a deadly pandemic while the rest of the world suffers :)Content warning for some short, typical 1800s descriptions that may be considered offensive today.
A witchy narrative poem for the Halloween season!Disclaimer: This poem unintentionally contains stereotypes about women and beauty that have been heavily incorporated into the collective unconscious' witch canon.
CONTENT WARNINGS:Connotation between mental illness and murderUse of outdated terms relating to mental illness, specifically "mad"One of my favorite Poe stories, this episode follows a character (presumably a man) who finds himself haunted by his murder of a kindly old fellow with an "evil eye."

A semi-humorous poem speculating on when human language evolved.
Lord Byron's 1815 poem about King Sennacherib's seige on Jerusalem, especially the Biblical version of the story. I'm not a big fan of religion or religious tales, but just as a work of art -- with its rhythm, metaphors, rhymes, etc. -- this poem is incredible.Also yes, I was (indirectly) named for Lord Byron. (My dad was named for him and I was named for my dad.) This happens to be the only poem I've read of his at time of recording, actually.

Poe's famous 1845 poem, long interpreted to be told from the perspective of a man feeling guilty about killing his wife.

A poem I wrote in 2018 based on Barbara Kingsolver's The Poisonwood Bible.
"The Lady of Shalott" (1832) by Lord Alfred Tennyson, 1st Baron Tennyson. The 1842 version is not very good in my opinion, so this is the original.

I just recorded this real fast so I could get the podcast on the various distribution centers. I'll delete it after episode 1 goes up because it is not an actual introduction lol.
