In this episode of the Strange Horizons podcast, editor Anaea Lay presents Ada Hoffmann’s “A Spell to Retrieve Your Lover from the Bottom of the Sea.”
I’m too miserable to feel love
Knocking on my bones
The door of my soul
Wipes its feet before it shuffles open.
Invoke your gods. Gods of the sea, gods of the lost, gods of desperate measures—but most of all, gods who know you and consider you a friend.
