The one that got away

You can't spell poetry without "Poe"

Hello! I just joined this group. Why? Three words: Edgar Allan Poe. I have a huge intellectual crush on the man.

I'm sad that I just recently discovered how witty he was. He's known for his horror stories and poems -- that's all they ever have us read in junior high & high school -- but I've got a book of his complete writings, and that man had a great, wicked sense of humor and an amazing imagination. Not to mention a huge vocabulary. Fwaaaah.

Plus, he apparently showed up for a parade wearing nothing but his boots and a sword when he was enrolled at West Point. That's funny and sexy.
