Many of you will recognize this poets wife....the true queen of vampire novels, Anne Rice. Her husband Stan, who passed away in 2002, is much more grounded in real life and everyday observances and his poetry is mostly real and poignant. For example his poem on love states; "how can we both be the loved one?"

Some of his poems weren't hits for me but overall I enjoyed his work. If you're ever interested check out his poem entitled "Garden Doghouse"......."the love that died is teaching me to love
