A Poem by Ken L. Jones
Lines Written in the Dark in the Haunted Mansion
New Orleans ghost mansion cobwebbed with
Blood rust shivering suits of armor
Stuttering of past lives
Lonesome Jack Kerouac flits across
The gas lit hall and fires up a butt
Scribbles something in
A penny notebook and then vanishes.
For the past thirty-five years Ken L. Jones has been a professionally published author who has done everything from writing Donald Duck Comic books to creating things for Freddy Krueger to say in some of his movies. In the last six years he has concentrated on his lifelong ambition of becoming a published poet and he has published widely in all genres of that discipline in books, online, in chapbooks and in several solo collections of poetry.
