Poem: "Once You Have Touched Her"

This poem came out of the June 4, 2013 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] aoifes_isle. It also fills the #12 Sibilant slot in the [community profile] rainbowfic Moonlight list. It has been sponsored by Shirley Barrette.

WARNING: This poem contains rape, graphic violence, torture, mystical horror, revenge, and other touchy topics. If you are sensitive to these matters or horror writing in general, seriously consider reading something else. For those of you who like seeing the bad guys Get Theirs, however, that also happens.

Poem: "Itching and Scratching"

This poem came out of the June 4, 2013 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] chanter_greenie. It has been sponsored by Shirley Barrette.

This is a direct sequel to "Pluck" and features a character from "Devil's Advocate." It builds on concepts introduced in "Hen-Feathered" and "Fledermäuse" so it will make more sense if you've read those first. These poems belong to the series Fledgling Grace.

Warning: This poem deals with life on the street, gang activity, alcoholism, homelessness, violence, vulgarity, sex traffic, discrimination, alternative gender identity, and other controversial topics. If these are sensitive spots for you, think carefully about whether you want to read on or skip this.
