Michael Potts is a master of finding a macabre twist for his poems. Each poem is a delicious little morsel best read at least twice. Disturbing, thought provoking, and sometimes darkly humorous, HIDING FROM THE REAPER will keep you coming back for more like a sinfully satisfying box of dark chocolate, and once gone, will have you wishing for more. My favorite was "Uncle Clark's Change," where Uncle Clark is not quite himself anymore. Other favorites include, "Black Moths," "Cleaning Prey on Thanksgiving Day," "Drama Queen Karma," "Wish Granted," and "Scaling and Cleaning" and the wickedly humorous "Bagging Prey."

A good horror poem brings chills to the reader, leaving behind a residue of fear that haunts the mind during the day and into an evening of nightmares. These poems, ranging in topics from death to ghosts to H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos, are written in the style of contemporary literary poetry but with a twist of horror that turns the mind from the mundane to the monstrous.​
