FK Poem: "Longer Than the Medicis"

"Longer Than the Medicis," my first fan poem, was nominated for FK fanfiction poem of the year for 1999.  My thanks to those who nominated it!  (The poem received only three feedback comments at the time, so without the generous nomination, I wouldn't have known anyone else read it, and I might not have tried writing fan poetry again.)

  •   Title: "Longer than the Medicis"
  •   Length: ~1,200 words
Nine pentameter 18-line stanzas, unrhymed
  •   Date: Posted to FKFic-L on August 30, 1999
  •   Summary: In Renaissance Italy, Janette and Nick host a party.
  •   Characters:   Janette, Nick
  •   Quotation: "But through candlelit hours of music / and talk, she could feel Nicolas waiting, / waiting, waiting for her, his molten voice / singing a long, slow kiss through the chamber."
