Will-o’-wisp poem in Eye to the Telescope

If you’re looking for something to brighten these dark days, Eye to the Telescope has a new issue out themed around light, including my poem “Trial of the Will-o’-Wisp (A Triolet).”  I’ve long admired Eye to the Telescope as a showcase of speculative poetry, always organized around themes, with a guest editor for each quarterly issue.  I’m honored that Jordan Hirsch selected my work for this one. 

This poem is my second triolet (the first appeared in Sidequest, based on the computer game The Oregon Trail).  I had fun seeing how much I could contort the repeating lines in such a short form.

Speaking of speculative poetry, I’ll be participating in an online reading and discussion next month through FOGcon, along with several other poets.  I hope you can join us.
