Commonline just published an older poem of mine, Riverrun the Ladder. Yes, the reference is obvious, though maybe not all that important for understanding the body of the piece.
Looking at the piece as it appears there, I think I might put it into the mixed collection I’m compiling under the working title Greater Seattlites, as it makes clear the influence (o brave word!) lurking around the edges of the short stories (among other reasons). It’s not an influence I’m entirely comfortable with for a variety of reasons, but it’s unavoidable, so I might as well jump down its throat and grasp its heart before cutting my way out with broken ribs (preferably its, not mine). Or something like that.
