Definitely heard knocking. Did not research the hotel until this morning so had no knowledge of the history

Comment on The Real Madame Lalaurie & Other Legends From American Horror Story: Coven by Realistically_Optimistic http://deepsouthmag.com/2014/01/the-real-madame-lalaurie-other-legends-from-american-horror-story-coven/#comment-613676 Thu, 30 Apr 2015 05:22:53 +0000 http://deepsouthmag.com/?p=22267#comment-613676 I don’t believe that the author is romanticizing Lalaurie or making excuses. She is simply stating the facts by referecting actual accounts, such as Delphine’s neighbor, as well as undisputable sources such as newspapers. No doubt that Lalaurie was and is still considered an awful, wretched woman, but it helps to look at the information from a calm demeanor as to not over exaggerate the story and turn fact into fiction.

Comment on Brenda Currin on Filming ‘In Cold Blood’ and Meeting Truman Capote by Techlife http://deepsouthmag.com/2014/11/brenda-currin-on-filming-in-cold-blood-and-meeting-truman-capote/#comment-613654 Wed, 29 Apr 2015 11:02:25 +0000 http://deepsouthmag.com/?p=26600#comment-613654 i watch In Cold Blood every week. The movie and book captivated me over 45 years ago. I am glad the movie reached its rightful place in the spotlight. I plan to visit the town of Holcomb before I die. The fact my surname is Holcomb has a eerie relationship to the town.

Things happen in life along the way and suddenly a light comes on while reading a poem. It’s relatable.

Comment on Elizabeth Seydel Morgan Reflects on a Poetic Career by Trish Lindsey Jaggers http://deepsouthmag.com/2015/04/elizabeth-seydel-morgan-reflects-on-a-poetic-career/#comment-613577 Sun, 26 Apr 2015 18:58:36 +0000 http://deepsouthmag.com/?p=28697#comment-613577 I have learned that many folks are “afraid” of poetry. National Poetry Month has taught me fun ways to approach people with and about poetry. For instance, “National Poem in your Pocket Day”: What better way to get a poem in the hands of someone who otherwise would never pick up a chapbook or collection?

And throughout the month, I discover wonderful quotes and exquisite lines from poets and poems I have yet to read (but will). Various media types get in on the spirit!

Every day should be a celebration of the shared air poetry creates, but I’ll take a month. I’ll make it last the whole year.

Comment on Florida’s Identity Crisis by Sal http://deepsouthmag.com/2012/12/floridas-identity-crisis/#comment-613575 Sun, 26 Apr 2015 17:27:53 +0000 http://deepsouthmag.com/?p=12582#comment-613575 You are all right and wrong at the same time. If you’re speaking in generalities you are correct about “south Florida”. But tell that to someone in Beverly Hills, Florida.. Sanford, etc. and more central/northern Florida. Its God’s country up there so in that respect you’re wrong. But in a very broad sweeping stroke you are correct. Miami and such is a bad representation of the south but say Davie, Fl. in Broward Country is a good example of a small southern town surrounded by Yankees. SO … no winners here.. everyone’s right and wrong at the same time :-)

Comment on Talking Guerilla Poetry With C.D. Wright by Poetroll http://deepsouthmag.com/2015/04/talking-guerilla-poetry-with-c-d-wright/#comment-613519 Sat, 25 Apr 2015 05:46:14 +0000 http://deepsouthmag.com/?p=28585#comment-613519 Poetry is the art of here and everywhere
…it is specificity transmuted widely
Poetry is written with a single clear voice
…yet able to permeate every single ear
It is the natural language of human minds
And its place is here, right here, always here
…wherever here may be
