The cabinet of curiosities is opening..

We’re all going to die someday and poetry is a low-key creepy way to explore our own mortality. Join Aurelien and Catrina as we kick off this weird book club and discuss our favorite creepy poems that we loved in high school: “Not Waving but Drowning” by Stevie Smith and “Lines Inscribed Upon a Cup Formed from a Skull” by Lord Byron.
