Bride of Frankenstein, a Poem by Mark Tulin

Not as pretty as a porcelain doll,
but you come close

in just the right light
without the least bit of strain
from hand-pumping
your hourglass figure
under the fullest of moons
with the deepest of breath

of the most perfect storm,
you become fully alive
in your plasticine glow.


I am an author, poet, humorist, and short story writer from Palm Springs, California. I write about various topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia to my years as a family therapist and finally to my soul-searching in California. These are poetic narratives that may have humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.

  1. Beautifully described!

  2. Deceptively simple at first glance, but forces you back for multiple readings. Nice!

  3. It evokes many interpretations and great pictures
