There's the poet and the beader and the third-wave feminist,
And the queer white atheist—I've got zir on the list!
The listener to Celtic and Janelle Monáe and P!nk,
The redhead gray-A woman who just wants people to think,
The square-dancing social democrat who knows ze's very shy,
Who doesn't Irish dance but would rather like to try,
Who critiques TV by writing what ze'd really like to watch,
Who fears that everything ze does is something of a botch,
And that singular anomaly, the lady novelist—
I don't think ze'd be missed—I'm sure ze'd not be missed!

A Dinner of Herbs: Tales from Scarborough Fair
by Elizabeth Conall
Parsley: Jumana is magically locked in the attic. Her only hope is her friend Nilam... Sage: Ms. Sophie lives in the house on the corner. People sometimes joke that she's a witch. They're right. Rosemary: The fae stole her in infancy. Can she learn to balance her two worlds? Thyme: Hina is a Damsel in a different kind of distress. Can she save both her Companion and their Quest—from her Hero?
