Reader Betsy Blondin posted a poem she wrote to the Robert McCammon Group on Facebook. Mr. McCammon enjoyed it and asked that I post it here, too.

Poem for RM – Unworthy Invasion

If I could shrink to the miniscule, invisible,
and sneak up a ladder
to your brain

I would crawl in and through,
dodging thought storms
and idea explosions

I would sniff for the lairs
of demons and monsters
ready to pounce into words

I would seek the path to the Imagi Nation
where creatures and characters lurk
waiting to frighten or fascinate me

I would sneak in to ringside
to watch in horror
the war of good v evil

I would stalk the gruesome and macabre
but also the human insights, love, joy and compassion
that breathe in your stories

I would explore every crevice
for the creative sparks
that ignite your magic

Then, exhausted, I would realize
that to discover these secrets

I must climb back down the ladder

and find your soul


–Betsy Blondin, December 2021
