Reviews for arsenic in her tea
from beneath the bell jar chapter 1 . 2/12/2007
Fantastic imagery. I liked the allusion to Mary Poppins - love that movie btw. My fav stanza was: "beautiful in the face of death,rigor mortis at the breakfast table,and arsenic in her morning tea.". Another great piece.

lots of love. for such morbid subject matter it's arty and beautiful and with lots of faded soft colors. the whole picture you painted was really an artwork. instead of feeling horror at the suicide or pity or i don't know i just feel respect for the lady who is still grand in her silk and who must have lived too long.

A wonderfully sadistic poem, written with the morbid calmness of a seasoned psychopath. Good job with providing us a slight insight into your tea-drinking persona's poem's going in my favs.

This has some haunting imagery in it. Lovely and dark elements mixed into an amazing poem that makes the mind think of things in a new fashion. Keep up the good work.

Wow, lol. You really are talented! I adore Mary Poppins, lol! And that song is awesome! *wants to watch Mary Poppins again* Your descriptions are wonderful, though your poems don't rhyme, I don't notice it because the flow is so good...You should make your summaries more interesting, lol, no offense, but something to attract readers because this definitely is worth reading! Love, Mia

Very sad, very hollywood, very fashionable. I love it.

Waha. Melly breaking copyright laws. _ The last stanza was as ironic as it was chilling. In fact, the whole poem was full of irony. Stark contrast at every turn, the disturbing message of the poem was brought across, and brought across well.

(And now you can't complain I didn't review._)

I love it! Your descriptions are so lovely, I'm envious! Your poem was so deep, yet dark, yet ever so elegant. I'm at a loss of words (not to mention I'm getting tired, it's midnight -)Heh, hope you write more (and I hope I get a chance to review)!Sumi-chanTickle me Pickle!
