Scifaiku Senryu


scrabble massacre
seventeen dead on Centauri
never challenge Mot

Something you're not likely to hear this year

Why of course you can borrow my mustache wax. Do you want the neutral or tinted?

Scifaiku Senryu

Andromedan ale
warm spice, a sharp bite, and regret
what ship am I on?

Mysterious Flower

Does anybody know what this flower is? We happened upon this morning on our walk, and I think it's gorgeous. It would make a nice tattoo. (Thanks for the photo, Ann!)

I think I may have an addiction to writing speculative poetry. No really, I can't seem to stop. Maybe I'm just avoiding the book. I think I heard it growling at me the other day. Every time I sit down to finish it, it snaps at me and hides under the coffee table.

Just as well.

I'm putting the finishing touches on a science fiction short story that I adore, and filling the world with threads of mind that crawl from my eyes and drop onto the page like little word spiders.

Had another poem accepted this morning, this one a scifaiku (science fiction haiku), but you can't read it until May, 2012. God, that's so far away. I wonder if I'll even remember I wrote it.

Why do you waste breath
Stringing words like precious bells
Tin cans sound fine too
