Excerpt Tuesday – The Slaughter-House – Alfred Hayes

 

HayesSlaughterhouseThis intriguing excerpt come from Alfred Hayes’ poem “The Slaughter-House” – you can read the whole poem here. In addition to his poetry, Alfred Hayes was a playwright, screenwriter (including for television shows such as The Twilight Zone), and novelist. Composition and drawing (ink on paper) by me. The object on the right is based on a pre-Columbian Mezcala temple effigy carved between 100 B.C. – 500 A.D.
