From “R E D”

chapter viii

We never refer to sadness

as something that looks

like secrecy

but it does

Chase Berggrun

{“R E D” (27 chapters long) is an erasure of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Berggrun took the text of Dracula and erased all the words except the ones that told a very different story that they wanted to tell. No words were added or moved out of original sequence – Lindsay Garbutt, Assistant Editor of Poetry Magazine}
