If you're unfamiliar with Bluebeard, this links to a summary of the Brothers Grimm story.


Bluebeard's Closet by Ralph Hamilton


When the door would open

The eye would scarcely fall

Upon rococo patterns

Of a papered wall.

For thrusting out in stark

And shining hues

Of reds

And perintoneal grays

And visceral blues

An intricately webbed

Resilient filigree

Of entrails

Hung from hook and hanger

With exquisite delicacy.
