Poem and art by Patricia Anne McCarty

“Darkness falls as the wind howls over the never breathing corps that once held such life. Now just a shell of their former selves, they roam the night…forever hungry.”

this was a Halloween play poster for Contra Costa College drama department. it’s done with 2 photographs and hand made filter I created myself.

    Hi Patricia you’ve done a great job. Just one thing… is corps supposed to be corpses, which is the plural of corpse?
    If it is, sorry to point it out, hope it’s not too late to change. :)

    LOL that’s OK most likely so what you said, the “poem” isn’t part of th art anyway, it’s just a filler because when the art went to the client, the client then added all the info, I didn’t want the right side blank. I’ll fix it another time, thanks :)

    lovely writing and image. Seems like much emphasis on wind/breath – even in the image it’s like the ground is breathing; and clouding over the stone statue that breathes no life.
