My poem "'53 Unbound" now live at OG's Speculative Fiction

My poem "'53 Unbound" has just gone live at OG's Speculative Fiction. The issue is in PDF format, so you'll need Adobe Acrobat to read it.

The poem was inspired by my 53rd birthday in September, when I noticed that I'd gone from '53, my birth year, to be 53 years old. It takes some of the major events of 1953, like the death of Josef Stalin, and gives them a speculative twist by imagining a temporally confused 1953. Please give it a peek, if you have a chance.
