Thanks to the link that I received from 25more, I wrote my most recent poem “The Roentgen Effect” based of two two articles from Atlasobscura. I blended ideas from an article about the man that discovered the x-ray and ideas from an article about “The Danse Macabre.”
If any one else is interested in helping me come up with ideas for Halloween themed poems, you can either:
Comment with the name of your favorite Halloween spook or scary folk tale.
Comment with the link to a website that goes in depth into the context of folktales.
