These are my entries for National poetry Month. I missed out on Day 1-3 but I’m writing ’em anyway. The first one is a reference to Haruka Shimotsuki’s Yggdrasil and Yuragu Sora albums.

The third is a cyberpunk/rainy day poem for my community story, Dragon Spire. The last one is a tribute to Ian M Banks (I read that he’s sick) and his Culture stories. I’ve never read a single Culture book (novels don’t bode we’ll with me) but I’m making a tribute anyway using the prompt from Napowrimo.net.
All poems use elements from Dragons & Cicadas.
