Get Yourself a Clue

Colonel Mustard hefts the wrench
smiling through the empty library
the darkened hall
antique glass on the faded carpet
a jagged shard
extra-lexiconical, if that's a word
but it would do
still-warm candlestick
and its wisp of smoke
so many choices
while Aunt May slumbers
on her bed
head down on the polished walnut table
snoring in the sun-struck wingback
watering the ferns
he's reached the kitchen now
the seasoned skillet, the...
someone's at the door



old poems
published in out-of-the-way places
still taste as sweet

Public comment period on national monuments

National monuments threatened by executive order. Comment by May 26 on Bears Ears, by July on the others. Lots of great monuments threatened!


Not a good photographer...


summer's cold cranks up
outdoor shade penetrates
my electric chill

A month of me

I'm the featured poet at Polu Texni this month. PT is a weekly webzine that publishes lots of great SFF poetry. Each one is accompanied by an illustration. These usually seem to be very apt.

May 8, interview with me
May 15, The Trajectory of Culture (w Kendall Evans) — A science fiction poem
May 22, If She Knew She Was a Ghost — A dark fantasy poem. Maybe a bit darker than that.
Another poem will be posted next Monday, and then another.
