I didn’t think I had a poem eligible for the Rhysling Award, because I didn’t think I’d had any speculative poetry published – but I do.

It was the nontraditional venue confusing my memory – but my Clotho Visits the Local Yarn Store is definitely a speculative poem published in 2009, and as such it’s eligible.

Do I expect it to be nominated? Of course not – there’s some phenomenally good stuff out there this year. But speculative poetry is one of the genres I like a lot, so I’m pleased to realize I did, in fact, publish something within it.

(And I am an SFPA member, so sometime within the next month I need to sit down and figure out what I want to nominate!)
