A bottleful of silly

The folks at Every Day Poets have accepted another of my poems, Witches' Brew. It's an homage to Shakespeare, my take on the infamous witches' chant from MacBeth. You remember: Round about the cauldron go; in the poisoned entrails throw.

Oonah, Nicholas and Constance, the EFP editing staff, said they thought Witches' Brew was amusing and playful. I like to think that Will would have approved. As a fillip, I structured the poem so that in print, its outline is that of a stoppered bottle.

I'll post a link when it's published.
