Life starts and ends
electrically.
Nana (known then to him as "mother")
took shots of it to the brain
so that she could be happy again.
But he took his intravenously,
strapped down to a chair,
his guts turned to ball lightning
and he may or may not
have cried.

2
Hair.
Long hair
so dark and neat
like Moses himself
parted it.

3
Her name was Stephanie Brooks
and she was his college sweetheart.
They dated for a year
until she dumped him
for not being ambitious.

4
A new girl every month
means something entirely different
to a serial killer.

5
Over thirty victims
in at least seven states.
How's that for ambitious?

6
Ted and Stephanie reunite
over law school textbooks and 9am coffee.
She is more than impressed,
until he breaks off all contact
soon after his proposal.

7
Imagine if you will
an enraged ex-fiancé
who murders only women
who look like you.

8
His next few lovers
he gave only
ligature mark necklaces.
Victims as scattered as his thoughts,
her femur is over here.
There, her skull,
blunt-force trauma and all.

9
Two years after his arrest,
Ted escaped
during a recess at his hearing.
Three break-ins and two stolen cars later,
he was back in a prison
that only held him for six months.

10
In the middle of the court room
the Pacific Northwest Killer proposes to former coworker
who was testifying on his behalf.
According to Florida law,
this makes them legally married.
They exchanged rings later
through the bars of his cell.

11
They say the third time's the charm.
I suppose
this also applies
with death sentences.

12
Speaking over the judge
"Tell the jury they were wrong!"

13
Waiting for execution,
he gives local detectives advice
on killers still at large.
They wouldn't be caught
for another 15 years.
Meanwhile,
the birth of his son.

14
Handcuffs and a stolen Volkswagon.
From the back of a police car,
a cop hears one of the most wanted fugitives.
"I wish you had killed me."
A poem about the life of Ted Bundy, done for my intermediate poetry class. Has been edited a couple times, may get edited again depending on my professor's reaction when I get it back.

All of this is completely true.
