*floppy wave* hi have pome  
My poem Tatakai, and interview about poem and such, are up on Strange Horizons! (And psst SH still has a fund drive going!)

*floppy wave yes*
I may finally be getting over the nearly 3 week bug that hit right as I got over the last one. Have now had maybe 3-4 healthy (for me) days since June?  And I'm still going to WFC? Wheee wish me luck.

Speaking of my body sucking, ST body issue is delayed until Rose's body and mine can both be made to behave for a few days, I'm afraid.

A very spiky, iron-tasting poem. I need to read it a few more times,but I suspect I won't get how the paradigm . . . warfare? Hooks under the skin.

The interviewer asked searching questions, eliciting fascinating yet unsettling response. I also need to come back to that, to try to understand so much of the world that my white gaze has blinkered. The part that I could comprehend was this:

But often, yes, I know what I'm going to end up with as I write. One part of that is who my narrator is and what they're doing. If the narrator is basically me, it's going to be poetry. If not, it depends. If they're talking to a "you," and any storytelling is implicit, it's probably going to be poetry. If they're recounting something, it's probably going to be prose or pseudo-oral narrative, however you classify that.

So there's "who's talking, who are they talking to, and how are they talking."

It's a close to the bone one for me, and yeah, it's important I think that it's not too accessible/comfortable/understandable, because differences need to not get sandpapered away, and too often I do that. Thank you for reading! <3

Also! Sending hugs from over here - didn't want to bother you/use your spoons, but elsmi saw your lj post and we are thinking hugs n good thoughts your way!

Thanks! Spoon hoarding. Is my new lesson.

And lots of reading to keep me sane.

I've got the poem and interview bookmarked for another read. Maybe more later.

Take care of yourself <3 I always love hearing from you but no need to use spoons on my account.
Not that I'm very good at the hoarding myself, but oh well!
