The title - Dying:(with no apologies to Martha Stewart) - of horror author Michael Arnzen's short collection of verses says it all. Each brief poem contains Martha Stewart-like tips for killing, cleaning up after murder, or disposing of the evidence. Most of the poems end with a sick twist that make the satire laugh-out-loud funny.

My favorite is #9, a delicious little four-line poem, which passes on advice given to the poet by his grandmother for using dead brains. Dying:(with no apologies to Martha Stewart) is a quick must read for fans of dark comedy (whether they love or despise poetry). But beware: these verses are truly sick and truly addictive.
