So! Go! Read! (It'll only take a minute.)
Thanks. Welcome back.
I am very chuffed, for a number of reasons. This is my first published poem*, and the first time I have been paid for poetry**. Furthermore, Apex is a reasonably respected name in sci-fi circles. Real writers write for it - like ursulav and, only last month, our own slightlyfoxed. Lastly, I feel as if I'm poking my nose cautiously out of the furry niche*** and into the larger niche of science fiction beyond.
Super thanks to porsupah, who pointed out the call for poetry submissions and shamed me into having a crack at it.
* Unless you count the one my parents sent in to the local paper when I was 7.
*** Not a euphemism.
