Flibberty Gibbeted

What is Flibberty Gibbeted? Well it's a play on the word flibbertigibbet, which Wiktionary defines as:
  1. An offbeat, skittish person; especially said of a young woman.
  2. (archaic) An imp, a fiend.
  3. A flighty person; someone regarded as silly, irresponsible, or scatterbrained, especially someone who chatters or gossips
Flibberty Gibbeted
It's also the title of a young and trimly figured volume of my poetry. This impish collection of 44 offbeat poems and a handful of flighty drawings puts an irresponsible spin on some classic tales and invents a few more originally scatterbrained myths along the way. The pieces are all informed by my skittish muse, the orange faerie, who can sometimes look a little fiendish, but her idle chatters are always enlightening.

The best news is, it's available right now as a free download, and if it captures a fancy for things concrete, there's also a paperback edition you can keep tucked under your pillow. Whichever version you prefer, you can use the same link to get it at LuLu.com.
