Ideomancer Publication

 

 

Ideomancer (an awesome online speculative fiction magazine) just published my poem “A Kindness of Ravens” on their website!

This one is free and ready-to-go for your reading pleasure here.

They produce the magazine for free, so if you like what you read there, consider donating to Ideomancer here.

Funding helps them pay poets like me when they publish our work.

You can also follow them on Twitter @Ideomancer.

This is the blurb I wrote describing the poem. It’s on the Ideomancer site too:

“A Kindness of Ravens” was inspired by the visits I made to see my grandmother at the UBC Hospital and the cranes (birds) and cranes (machines) all over campus. I imagined Raven, trickster deity of the Haida, forming a kindness of ravens with my grandmother when she died, rather than one of the actual collective nouns for ravens: an unkindness. There is also a pandemonium of other avian literary allusions in the poem. Comment if you can find them!

Happy reading!
