This poem was originally published in Strange Horizons * (10 March 2008).

I used words and phrases from this poem as search terms on flickr, and then selected photos from the search results (whether or not the photos had anything to do with the poem) and made the above collage.

While the above pictures in the collage, and the collage as a whole, have been used with permission under various CC licenses, this is not to be considered a collective work – reproduction of all items not explicitly under the CC license is prohibited without the expressed consent of the owner.
