My June 5, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl sold out, so all the poems have been posted. Three of them from this batch feature asexual protagonists, and two of those are explicitly about asexuality:

"Hearts of Stone" (Schrodinger's Heroes)
"The Myth of Amethystos"
"The Ceiling of Her Sky" (Path of the Paladins)

Update: Hart's Farm won the audience poll -- some of my ace friends voted for it -- as the series to be featured in the bonus fishbowl on June 19, 2012.  If you would like more poetry about ace characters, nonsexual relationships, healthy family dynamics, etc. then please drop by my blog and leave prompts or just browse the action.  

These are the asexual characters previously established in the poetic series Hart's Farm:

Rowen (Norse: little red one, rowan tree) has fair skin and curly hair of rich red, about shoulderblade length and often pinned up under a cap. Born male, Rowen prefers a feminine role and usually dresses as a woman. Farmborn: great-grandchild of Ronan, grandchild of Ola, child of Soren, older sibling of Lia, auntie of Astrid.

Rowen comes from a prompt by LJ user Rickybuchanan: I am imagining a very affectionate biromantic asexual genderqueer character who has a passion for gardening, especially growing edible herbs and plants, and loves getting the children involved in the garden too.

Introduced in "Rosehips and Honey," reappearing in "Julbord" and "Alone in the Bee-Loud Glade."

Solvig (Old Norse: strong house) is a woman scholar with curly black hair pinned atop her head. She usually dresses in black, dark gray, or dark blue. Solvig is quiet and rather solitary for Hart's Farm, but she is very close friends with her housemates Hrafn and Gróa. Outsider. Aromantic asexual.  Introduced in "Welcome to Hart's Farm," reappearing in "After Dark," "Julbord," and "Alone in the Bee-Loud Glade."
