Birthdate:Sep 27
Location:United States of America
I am Rose Lemberg. I write speculative poetry and short fiction. I've also completed a dark fantasy novel.
As a beginning academic, I write articles (currently finishing #6) and books (working on #1, which is only partially based on the diss). I teach at a large Midwestern U, and I'm a mother of a beautiful 2.5 year old autistic boy.

My ribcage is the birdcage for the bird
that beats within
that burns within -
The flame concedes its lordship to the tide,
The waters overflow and quench my light.
