“Death Waits” on Bare Knuckle Podcast

BKP MeslingPete Mesling, host of the Bare Knuckle Podcast, did a wonderful job of reading poetry from the newly released HWA’s Poetry Showcase Volume III, edited by David E. Cowen, and available in ebook and paperback from Amazon.

THE HORROR WRITERS ASSOCIATION (HWA) is a nonprofit organization of writers and publishing professionals around the world, dedicated to promoting dark literature and the interests of those who write it.

I’m thrilled Mesling chose my poem, “Death Waits,” to be included in his recorded readings from the book. To be included among so many great names in the dark poetry genre is an thrill.

The poems read, in order:
