Some of my poems are now up over at Danse Macabre. Two (The Collector and Fault Lines) are in the Isotropic poetry section, and one (On the Couch) is part of their "Du Jour" teaser. I'm putting the links here but I think the second one might change later on.
This all made me very happy! Danse Macabre has some really wicked themes and the quality is always high. The theme for this issue is "Strontium". According to DM:
"Strontium is a soft, silvery metal most widely known for the synthetic isotope strontium-90 (90Sr), a product of nuclear fission. Strontium-90 is present in radioactive fallout (aboveground testing 1945-1980) and releases from nuclear power plants (e.g., Chernobyl in 1986 and Fukushima last year)."
"STRONTIUM, however, is different. This time, you bring the context with you."
