Spencer Drew, "Honeymooning"

A widow walks around museums in her wedding gown.

(from Opium 1)

Uh. It’s not a total goth fantasy camp, but it’s close. All the images of relics and taxidermy on shelves as the expressionless bride mopes around don’t add up to much more than smart imagery, but that’s okay. This reads more like a dream (like, say, Peter Murphy’s dream) than a story. It’s short and single-minded and not a bad read.
