Review: Her Scales Shine Like Music

Her Scales Shine Like Music
Her Scales Shine Like Music by Rajnar Vajra
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Space prospector whose hobby is writing poetry is left alone on an alien planet to stake out a claim on some mysterious and seemingly abandoned alien artifacts. While there, he makes first contact with a strange but beautiful alien leviathan. His way of making sense of his cautious encounters is through poetry.
I liked the ideas here, but wasn’t sure that the execution was as strong as it could’ve been. I wanted more to take away at the conclusion of the piece.
