It took only twenty-two minutes for Kirby Matheson to exit his car, march onto the school grounds, enter the gymnasium, and open fire, killing six and injuring five others.
But this isn’t a story about the shooting itself. This isn’t about recounting that one unforgettable day.
This is about one boy—who had friends, enjoyed reading, playing saxophone in the band, and had never been in trouble before—became a monster capable of entering his school with a loaded gun and firing bullets at his classmates.
Each chapter is told from a different victim’s viewpoint, giving insight into who Kirby was and who he’d become. Some are sweet, some are dark; some are seemingly unrelated, about fights or first kisses or late-night parties. This is a book told from multiple perspectives—with one character and one event drawing them all together—by some of YA’s most recognizable names.
But the baby is hers.
Wrapped in tinfoil,
Placed in a microwave,
Little hand tapping on the glass,
And right before it explodes,
“I didn’t mean it!”
The collaboration of two Orange County grown poets, 31 Poems for an Orphic October explores the disturbing themes and elements inherent in revenge, rejection, isolation, promiscuity, deceit, murder and even the Devil himself. An unsettling journey in and out of life’s darker moments, this collection challenges and assaults the reader in ways that no other poetry collection ever could. Featuring artwork by poet Brendan Shusterman, 31 Poems for an Orphic October hopes to burn a new path forward just as it harvests what was left of the old one behind—looking back to see the Eurydice in all of us. Prepare yourself for a darkened theatre of two minds rolled into a third, and then further personified into thirty-one gothic, autumnal, auric, and lyrical days—the poems of an Orphic October.
