One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Of Angels and Monsters

For today’s prompt I’ve gathered seven pop culture quotes that have to do with angels, monsters or both. Your mission is to pick one and create a poem based on it. Your poem does not have to specifically be about an angel or a monster, but it must have some relation to at least one of these quotes. Please be sure to mention the quote that served as your inspiration somewhere in your post, and as always pay a visit to your fellow poets.

“I’m the thing monsters have nightmares about.” – Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

“He’s an angel, not a saint.” – Michael

“'Listen to them, the children of the night. What music they make!” - Dracula

“One may tolerate a world of demons for the sake of an angel.” – Doctor Who

 “I can spot a commandment breaker a mile away.” –Dogma

“Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?” – It’s A Wonderful Life

“We all go a little mad sometimes.” - Psycho
