Love Craft

H. P. Lovecraft, the dark god of the Gothic, taught us about the beasts under our beds, about the worlds behind our wallpaper, about the secret stains in all our haunted homes.  Bryan D. Dietrich’s new volume of poems dusts beneath those same beds, tears at the same wallpaper, and runs screaming into the history of those same houses.  Dietrich’s poems, like Lovecraft’s stories, show us the fathers and mothers of our terror, but they also ask:  Is there something in their tortured tales we can craft at last into love?
