It's Spring in the Forever Zoo by Bo Balder. Narrated by J.S. Arquin. Featuring an afterword recorded by Bo Balder. #scifi #flashfiction #prosepoem 

It is spring, a moonlit night in the Forever Zoo, starless and bile-black, the hunched, despairing and forgotten in the cages limping invisible down to the sloeblack, slow, black, crowblack, starshipbobbing sea.

Hush, the aliens are sleeping, the star-fished, the multiples, the genderless and thousand-armed, vegetable, outward-digesting, trader and cannibal, the carrion-eater and the scent-luring, the pierced and the rocking lives.

Bo Balder lives and works close to Amsterdam. Bo is the first Dutch author to have been published in F&SF, Clarkesworld and Analog. Her fiction has also appeared in Escape Pod, Nature and other places. Her sf novel "The Wan"was published by Pink Narcissus Press. She is a member of SFWA, Codex Writers and a graduate of Viable Paradise.

For more about her work, you can visit her website or find Bo on Facebook.
