Published: “The Song of Calamity Joe”
I sit in a bunker
When a nicotine cackle sounds in my ear:
“Why so glum, boy?” he asks, and I sigh.
My first poem is out in Spectral Realms No. 13, edited by S.T. Joshi. I can best describe “The Song of Calamity Joe” as a mildly horrifying post-apocalyptic “Under the Sea”. I don't normally write poems so this is a rare treat.
