This week is Spec Fic blogging week, organised by the Speculative Fiction Writers of New Zealand.   Here then, is a science fiction poem I wrote:

lovesnog in blue

I love the cool smoothness
of your tentacles
your triple eyes of Terran blue

let me fondle your mandibles
palpate your maxillae
under the idling moons

through the singing times
through the trembling times
through the wildwinterstorm times

I will love you with
my strobilating polyps
my many radulae of Terran blue

The second issue of the online journal of speculative poetry Eye to the Telescope, featuring Australian and New Zealand poets, is now live.  It’s been edited by Wellington writer Tim Jones and contains my poem ‘Yayoi Kusama Goes to Iceland’.

I’m in excellent company: other poets in the journal include Raewyn Alexander, Helen Rickerby, Stephen Oliver, Laurice Gilbert, David Reiter, Cy Matthews, Catherine Fitchett, Alicia Ponder and Joe Dolce (better known for the song ‘Shaddup You Face’).
