Poetry at Aberrant Dreams and SFPA

Just in time for Halloween, my poem "Dr. Holt's House of Hormones" went live yesterday at Aberrant Dreams. I wrote this poem in the belief that too much alliteration is never enough:

On a tumbledown tract
in a lampless lane
at the end of the end of the end
stands old Doc's house,
porch boards popping
and rank rooms peeling

Speaking of my favorite holiday, SFPA's annual Halloween Poetry Reading (a tradition I had a little something to do with starting) is also online. This one's all audio, so no complaints about being too tired to read. I contributed "The Biology Building," a poem inspired by my experience in visiting Hubby in his grad student labs, where the "human anatomy" students kept their dissected cats in little book bag-type cubbies, and there were other little weirdities everywhere you looked.

While there, don't miss "Its Hour Come Round at Last" (published in Raven Electrick earlier this year) with spooky-cool voice effects by [info]seajules.
