Stalk Footage
by E.W. Wilder

For a period in May of 1996, Bean Newton developed a style that was far more straightforward and less outwardly fractured than his other works. The result revealed a deep-seated paranoia, and possibly the manifestations of a latent and undiagnosed psychosis that may help explain his later behavior.

The following poems are exemplary of this period.
