My good friends at Danse Macabre offer a triple play of Peterson this month, offering a reprint of my story, Snow White : Sadist,  and two $3 dollar poems about 2 timing men, What’s the Scuttlebutt Betty? & Illywhacker.

If you’re thinking the first one sounds familiar congratulations.  You know your iconic REM songs. In fact Betty started life as Kenneth,  but I thought a female name fit better with the theme of woman done wrong. Look for a smattering of other fun words, like bugaboo bugbear and torque.

Illywhacker is a little more fun and a little less personal,  which is what you’d expect from archaic Scottish slang. Special thanks goes out to the folks at writingraw.com for introducing it to me.
