Poem: "Those Who Hear Not the Music"

This poem came out of the October 7, 2014 Poetry Fishbowl.  It was inspired by prompts from [personal profile] brushwolf  and Shirley Barrette.  It has been sponsored by Shirley Barrette.  It also fills the "history" square in my 9-29-14 card for the [community profile] origfic_bingo Fest.

WARNING: This poem contains true stories of genius abuse and neglect.  If that's sensitive territory for you, think carefully about whether you want to read onward.

Poem: "Water Colors"

This poem was commissioned by [personal profile] dialecticdreamer.  It's a direct sequel to a scene in her story "Necessary Conversations" and some commentary below it, so you should read that first in order for this to make the most sense.  It also fills the "youth" square in my 9-29-14 card for the [community profile] origfic_bingo  fest.  This poem belongs to the Polychrome Heroics series.
