A Young Beautiful Winter

Here’s my last minute entry to whimword’s #whimter contest.

After La Cloche fêlée by Baudelaire

Her pleasure is all,
warming the long nights of winter
at a fire that burns bright
distant memories.

Blessed daughter
who, in love with her youth,
throws faithfully her voice
into the open mouth of her lover.

Me, my soul is wracked with nonexistance.
I watch through the glass.
It often happens that my voice fails me.

I have felt the slow dissolution of a man who is
forgotten at the edge of a lake of youth.
I see condensation forming on the window.

Science: A Narrative Theory

I’m very pleased to have my short story, Science: A Narrative Theory, published as part of the HARTs and Minds Journal’s Science, Society & Civilisation edition. Given the theme of this issue, I thought it would be interesting to use some technology to aid my writing and generated the first plan of the short story using an online plot generator. If you’re interested in what might happen if a personification of Science were to meet a personification of Civilisation do check it out.
