“Atomic Numbers” poem in Analog!

My poem “Atomic Numbers” is currently featured in the Poetry Spotlight in Analog (to read for free online).


…And I got a tweet about it already! Wow!
“Here’s a poem I just read and loved–”


From wikipedia about Analog:

“Analog Science Fiction and Fact is an American science-fiction magazine published under various titles since 1930. Originally titled Astounding Stories of Super-Science, the first issue was dated January 1930, published by William Clayton, and edited by Harry Bates…

…Over the next few years Campbell published many stories that became classics in the field, including Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series, A.E. van Vogt’s Slan, and several novels and stories by Robert A. Heinlein. The period beginning with Campbell’s editorship is often referred to as the Golden Age of Science Fiction.”
