Two poems published in one day...

...in two different publications as well. 

I'm thrilled with each, naturally. And I love the picture the editor of Polu Texni found to go with my poem.

"Monuments of Frost" is a science fictional poem about art on another planet. After writing it, I looked back and saw it as having a sort of kindred connection with Ursula LeGuin's brief stories of other places in Changing Planes.

The other one isn't available to read online yet, but you can order the issue now to read it. "Beings of Air" appears in issues 2.4 of Mythic Delirium. As with the other, while it isn't specifically inspired by any other work, I see a connection with other stories, this time Italo Calvino's Qwfwq stories (which I highly recommend, anyway...). Some crawl through Wikipedia led me to learning all kinds of things about our atmosphere, and I turned that into a fable-like poem about the beings that live up there. It will be featured this June and free to read them, but buy a copy anyway, and you can read it right away.
