All direct proceedings to Experiments in Fiction are donated to World Wild Life to help combat climate change issues. You can also purchase the anthology as a Kindle e-book or paperback on Amazon, but I’d recommend purchasing directly from Ingrid as well.

By the canefields at dusk.

From solidarity and desire, the trace of winter’s end,
Will I always remember that? I see people
Scowled on their prophecies, and dreams from before
Are never nearly settled in the impression of first want—
With these rhythmic ghosts upon red petals, and in the distance
The beauty of the dew—vanishing in deeper silence—
Terrifying their own voices nightmarish with unease

Dissonance of a dream.

the dark slithers, betraying the scarlet moon

into the mellifluous hunger in each haze,

a new mother of spring,

the hills, the silence of untiring wanton blood

blanket me.

blanketing the red koi leaves of grass / the ambrosiac death
naked in a dance / under the moon; heart whittled / a sea sings the backbone and root of grief
