New Verses

The generally sponsored poetry poll for June 2011 directed $20 into epic poetry.

There are 3 new verses in "Fiorenza and the Witch-Son." This poem takes a look at social roles and gender dynamics, following Fiorenza the Italian herbalist at a time when there is NOT a major preternatural crisis going on.

There is 1 new verse in "Igor's Creature." This is a mix of horror and science fiction with a large helping of sociology and a wry twist of humor.

The first two verses of "Enki's Messenger" have also been posted. This is mythic poetry about the kurgarra and the galatur mentioned in the Sumerian myth "The Descent of Inanna."  Remember that haikujaguar has offered to do a sketch illustrating this poem if it's sponsored.
