A short story ...

... The Cry Of The Peacocks.

The line from from Wallace Stevens's "Domination of Black" - "And I remembered the cry of the peacocks" - meant a good deal more to me when I heard what a hair-raising scream it is.

  1. Frank, thanks for the mention here, you are brilliant! I did wonder if anyone would think of that wonderful poem ... I reread it just the other day when finishing off this story! And I almost put in a reference to hemlock there somewhere ... but in NZ?
