' John Carradine's World '


It has been a while since I last posted a poem at this site and there were too many reasons for this situation. Anyway my poetry collection Private Worlds: A Revised Atlas has been reissued in POD and Ebook formats by Speaking Volumes (www.speakingvolumes.us) and this poem is from that collection. It is a tribute to an actor whom my late mother's late boss proclaimed as the best actor in America. What more can I say--here is the poem.

Even the worst monster
and blood thirsty mad scientist
can always remain
the perfect Boston gentleman.
