I'm on vacation today, but I wanted to drop in. I like a bunch of different kinds of poetry, including science fiction poetry. Here's the first part of "Imperfect Storm" by Robert Borski:
by Robert Borski
Though the thunder is deep enough
to rattle the stones of the castle
and the sky is whited out
for nearly minutes at a time,
none of the storm’s bolder strokes
ever seem to find the copper finials
set atop the parapets designed to conduct
the voltage down to the laboratory
below. As a result, the cold, stitched-
together dead thing lying on the slab
never receives the animating spark
it needs to kickstart its black heart.
