Poems, poems, poems

The Science Fiction Poetry Association is currently calling for nominations for its annual Rhysling Award. As others have done, I'm listing my 2007 poetry publications in my LJ. (Helpful to the last, dontcha know.) Since this year I'm including poems I've published as well as those I've written, I'll keep my author list to a few of my favorites available online:
