New poem “Taboo” in Strange Horizons

My poem “Taboo” is up in this week’s issue of Strange Horizons!

Read it here!

As the northern days lengthen
our time together is thread-thin

It’s about fairytale taboos and transformation, set in a mythological-Finland-ish world. In fact, it’s the same world where my previous Strange Horizons poems are set (“Wolf Daughter” and “Raw Honey”), and where I’ve set a few stories, too. I love Finnish folklore and I love twisting it to my own purposes.

(I promised a post on novel revision but I’m still mired in the actual revision and have had little brain for much else in my free time. But I’ll write that post soon!)
