The Jinni’s Wish (new poem)

The Jinni’s Wish

A wish for endings
like tied shoe strings.

A wish for finishing
like stains on cut tree limbs,
glossy in death
and dining-room tables…

Read the rest in Star*Line (issue 40.4, fall 2017). The issue is 40+ pages chock-full of poetry, available for sale in PDF and print.

Thank you to Vince Gotera​ and the Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry Association for publishing the poem.
