Poem: "Blackwork"

This poem was written outside the regular prompt calls. It fills the "Keep It Safe from Them" square in my 1-1-16 card for the Spies, Secret Agents, and Noir Bingo fest. It has been sponsored by [personal profile] technoshaman[personal profile] technoshaman. This poem belongs to the Shiv thread of the Polychrome Heroics series, and is followed by "Redwork" and "Whitework."

Warning: Canon-typical mayhem inside Shiv's head. Highlight for more details. This poem contains angst, struggling with strong emotions, traumatic memories, confusion, choice paralysis, feeling overwhelmed by therapy bringing up uncomfortable issues, distrustful thoughts, privacy issues, past near-fatal event, comparisons with self-harm, and other challenges. But it's actually rather hopeful; Shiv is making good progress. If these are touchy topics for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward.

Poem: "Vanilla Is a Spice"

This poem is spillover from the February 2, 2016 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by prompts from LJ user Draggon_flye and Anthony Barrette. It also fills the "such a gentleman" square in my 1-23-16 card for the Valentine's Day Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by LJ user Draggon_flye. It belongs to the series Polychrome Heroics and is a companion poem to "All You Can Do Is Feel."

Note: This poem is all M/F sexyfuntimes. If that's not your cuppa tea, you can skip it without missing more than some background characterization and discussion of super sex lives.
