The Irish Fall
by Josiah J. Eikelboom
We woke to the cawing of crows today To the warrior's lament to the Badb's call We woke to the twilight months ushered in to the fallow barren fields to dead days come We woke to the call of the Otherworld to the tales of the proud dead to their songs sung We woke to the cawing of crows today and to the swaying of trees bearing cold fruit
Josiah J. Eikelboom is a New Hampshireite born and raised, now living in the urban wilds of Portland, ME. He attended the University of New Hampshire as an eventual English major, focusing on Medieval Epic and Romance and myriad other things. He is the Arts and Acquisitions Manager of the soon to be defunct Osiail Publishing. This a sad thing, though he's looking forward to being able to write again.
When asked "what's your favorite fruit," he would reply, apples. In all things apples.
