Howard Moss was the poetry editor for the New Yorker for many years and helped to promote the careers of several now famous poets (Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton among them). He was also a poet in his own right and published 14 books of poetry. It is interesting to think of how his two roles interacted and informed one another – the poet as editor and trendsetter and the editor as poet. His poem “Horror Movie” had been on my radar for a little while – you can read the whole movie-reference laden poem here, second poem down on the page. Photograph and composition by me. Enjoy!
