Today is the last day at Arisia. I’ll be doing some crafts with the little kids (one of my favorite times of the con!) and wrapping up the weekend.

Next week, I will be at Arisia, the big SF convention in Boston. I’m going to have a table at the art show. Please comment if you’d like to get together.

I won’t be working on any new cameos this year, but I’ll have more knitted bracelets and some gargoyles. And maybe some other things as inspiration strikes and time permits.

test-tube refuse,
lessness grown in tanks and bottles
we stirred fertility en masse
at minimal risk,
same blood, same genes
our co-flesh,
(could we have foreseen
the pillaging and plundering?)

our similarities have become our differences,
same face yet deviant actions—exhibit
the pattern of autoimmune failure.
our soldier selves stand at the front lines.
how many dead?
they hold artificial lives at gunpoint.
triggers assume a life of their own,
becoming thunder claps
and then silence
