Here is a just a small sample of Dr. Ungar’s poetry from Charlotte Brontë, You Ruined My Life (taken from the review below):
The brides lean in with ghastly lips,
devouring kisses, ride the men
relentlessly and laugh as hair and ribbons
of flesh peel off in foetid wind, come
in wave after wave of formaldehyde.
