The Communion
by Marge Simon

Cecile arranges a set of Winsor chairs
side by side on the beach, one red, one brown.
I smile, for she wears her best bombazine blouse,
giving us a hint of the night’s festivities ahead.
I light three candles, balance them
on the heads of identical triplets;
summoned here for this purpose,
they sit cross legged at my feet.
We bleed ourselves under the moon’s horn.
Cecile’s fluted silver dipper shines with our fluids,
as smiling, she ladles our offerings into the tureen.
Once a communal bowl, it is again just so.
As the moon lowers in the southern skies,
she summons her warriors to drink.
We do enjoy those moments,
waiting for madness to manifest,
this glorious night on our silver shore.
Cecile takes up her sacred cello to play
Bach’s Suite Number Two in D Minor,
as her soldiers dance around her, crazed with lust.

The Demeter Diaries
by Marge Simon and‎ Bryan D. Dietrich

‘The Demeter Diaries’ is a record of love and longing and the inevitable horror that arises between the minds of Mina Harker and Vlad Dracula as they court one another in waking dreams. The dialogue, written in both poetry and prose, imagines a psychic connection that develops between the two even before Dracula arrives in England. As Dracula makes his way from Transylvania to Whitby on the doomed ship Demeter, the two would-be lovers transmit their thoughts across the waves and lands that separate them, alternately wooing and terrifying one another with the idea of love eternal and all the dark delicacies necessary to ensure it. Front cover art by Wendy Saber Core, interior illustrations by Luke Spooner.

Available on Amazon!
