Writing a Comic Book Poem – The Fog

For The Fog we have a story of a fog coming and engulfing a town. I wrote this not long after watching the John Carpenter film The Fog. It is a great horror film, but other than evoking the tone of the movie I wanted to take a small element from the plot and develop a poem with obvious and somewhat explicit phrases.

The Fog
Flowing towards the people
and puffed up in jealous guilt

The night can’t stop blank dead
cold walls kissed by the grey

Nothing can hide inside
what pours out the flooding veins

Deadly dense and innocent
faceless never the less

Leaving the lonely city
Open mouth it gaups at you

One of those open days
The clear moon will come out
