Read an Excerpt:
II. The Hunted
I examine the sword
curved and round like the moon
it is entrenched in my ruined hearth
no power can help me lift it from the earth
it stands there
the message is clear
a red haze beckons
I understand and nearly roar
I know you, I mutter to myself
I understand what you’re saying
you’re bigger than me
you know where I live
and you can do this to me
I don’t fear you
you think you are out there hunting me
but it’s I who am hunting you
I look at my friends
and suddenly feel lost
what do I do with them?
this isn’t just my story anymore
there is so much they have not seen
will they be safe without me?
will I really feel better seeking revenge?
I don’t know
I am angry and scared
savage and violent
without a clue what to do next
I look at my blackened blades
forever stained with the blood of dragons
it had been a while since they feasted
they would do so again
so I run
I follow the trail back into the forest
the footprints beacons and crumbs for me to pursue
listening to the sounds of the forest
I hear the eternal struggles of my friends, the rabbits and the ooze
the werecat in the distance
he isn’t here, whoever he is
but I am patient and cunning
I can wait

Joshua Pantalleresco writes stuff. It’s even on his business card. This is a succinct way of saying that in addition to writing poetry, he also does interviews, columns, comics, prose and anything possible with the written word. When he isn’t writing, he’s playing with podcasts, filming stuff, fiddling with alternative medicine, travelling, talking to people and pretending he is a rockstar. Stormdancer is his second book through Mirror World Publishing. He lives in Calgary.
