Two new poems, and the Strange Horizons fund drive
So, earlier this week, Strange Horizons published my poem “The rivers, the birchgroves, all the receding earth.” It is a very Russian poem; it is short and has hares.
Each spring the rivers rose, I pushed my boat
out to the drowning forest. Hares
stood on tree stumps, shaking. Each to each
rattled the babble of snowmelt, clung
to the last of dry ground.
And today, Strange Horizons published my and Emily Jiang’s poetic/musical collaboration, Salamander Song, as a part of their bonus issue. Go listen to it – the music is astounding!!
If you can, and you haven’t yet, please support Strange Horizons by donating to their fund drive. Strange Horizons is a wonderful venue which I love very much, and which took chances on numerous new authors. I made my first professional fiction sale to this market.
