Happy birthday, Edgar!

Edgar Allan Poe

Happy birthday, Edgar!  You would have been 209 years old today.  I wish you were still here.  40 years just wasn’t enough, but you accomplished so much!  I have two full sleeves of tattoos dedicated to your stories, along with my back, and part of my lower leg (and I'm not sure what next).  Now, that’s what I call a fan, or maybe just crazy, but I’m fine with being called both.  You were the best!

I was never really insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched.
