"Freebasing the Moon"

Mike Allen is a terrific and wildly imaginative poet, and he doesn't disappoint with his latest offering at STRANGE HORIZONS, which opens thusly:


Seek the pusher in the bands
of shadow cordoning the trees.
Silver glitters in his cratered eyes,
pockets pregnant
with moondust in dimebags.
--Freebasing the Moon
By Mike Allen
