The Maryland Regional Science Fiction Convention of 2014, selected my poem (below) for honors at Balticon 48 Poetry Contest:

Astral Lullaby
-- James Ph. Kotsybar

Swaddled in magnetosphere,
gently rocked on an arm of our mother galaxy,
we begin to learn from our grandmother galaxies.

Their shining countenances
have travelled light years to enlighten us,
with tales of their own turbulent and chaotic youth.

At bedtime,
They soothe us with
stories that seem like fairy tales.

They tell us about Goldilocks --
a zone of immense improbability and precision
we’ve somehow found just right.

The quickest way for me to learn something new is to first understand why I'd like to learn it.
