New Poem up at Liminality: Acacia

A Spell for Safety

Image courtesy Wikipedia

I have a new poem up today at Liminality: A Magazine of Speculative Poetry.

This poem is called “Acacia,” and it’s named after a plant commonly used in rituals and spellcraft.

Use to anoint torches and consecrate hope chests. Endows protection as well as psychic and mystical powers. If planted inside a fairy ring, it will bring prosperity to the closest home. If burned, it creates a hypnotic state that is often perilous.

TW: This poem deals with illness and cancer.
