Electric Cat City: a Poesy


“In plain language Cates paints vivid pictures of the grotesque, the unnerving, things felt but not often spoken aloud. Poetry filled with earnest horror that engages the real and the fantastical, walking the fine line that separates the two.”

— Jean-Paul L. Garnier, Editor, Star*Line Journal of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Poetry Association


“In Electric Cat City: a Poesy, author Anna Cates enjoys the art of fantasy, folklore, and spontaneous illusion. She loves to write with imagination and magic; a reading of bones by the sea, a dinner at Wolf ’s house, ramblings of meth demons, Yeats’ like spirit writing, senryu emerging from primordial slime. Come join her in a fun contemporary journey beyond reality into a spook-house of fabulous witching-hour poesy.”

— Randy Brooks, co-editor, Mayfly

Few survive the beast, find themselves vomited ashore, hair tangled with seaweed, skin bleached from stomach acid, to sulk upon the beach as the sun sinks, waiting for the worms to come.

I thought his warehouse contents couldn’t get weirder —
I thought I’d witnessed his oddities’ extent —
I thought I’d seen the most macabre of antiques —
Only to discover . . . he owns an electric chair!
