It came from Mia Ram

Mia Ram’s story “The Crystal Pyramid” was published in Metaphorosis on Friday, 19 August 2022. I enjoy ekphrastic writing exercises (meaning writing that is based on an image or work of art) and this story is the result of one such exercise.

A question for Mia Ram

Q: What hero (of any gender) would you name your child after, if we lived in a society with names like that?

A: Moon Knight. It’s a name that commands attention, both from peers and from ancient Egyptian gods. Moon Knight is a great namesake because he’s a hero whose identity is in perpetual flux. He becomes whatever he needs to be in the moment, and that’s the kind of philosophy I’d like to impart to the next generation. Fancy gadgets and super strength are all well and good, but true power is the power to adapt and change.
