“Harvesters” poem published in Triangulation: Energy

I said it before when Triangulation: Habitats came out, and I’ll say it again now that Triangulation: Energy is out, I love how in recent years Parsec Ink has used their annual anthology to examine important sustainability-related topics through speculative fiction and poetry.  Last year they included my eco-horror story “Discount Night at the Haunted Eco Lodge,” and this year they’ve included my new Latinx futurism poem “Harvesters.” 

This poem came about from a mix of experiences:  reading about Dyson spheres, watching a video about vertical farming and wondering how that could ever apply to one of Ecuador’s top exports, touring a biodynamic vineyard while studying abroad in Chile, and volunteering as a teenager to deliver school supplies to kids at a local migrant camp.
