Poem: Dr. Jekyll by Mark Tulin


The holy man scares me

He teeters on the edge

of light and darkness

of right and wrong

of truth and falsehood

There’s a fine line

between good and evil

from pious to the diabolical

and he crosses that line

back and forth

Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde.


Author, poet, short story writer from Santa Barbara, California. I write about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching present in California. These are narratives that may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.
