This is the freebie for the April [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] librarygeek. It also fills the "bully" square in my 4-1-19 card for the School Days fest.

Today is the last day of the half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics.  If you still wish to participate in that, please take a look at what's left and make your selections.

Today is sunny, warm, and calm.  It's the first chance I've had to get out and do yardwork since I bought the previous round of plants.

Round One -- First I put the goddess statue back into the goddess garden.  Then I planted a silver thyme and a creeping thyme around that.  

Next I planted 6 marigolds and 6 snapdragons in the barrel garden.  :D

EDIT 4/21/19: Round Two -- I planted 6 marigolds in the septic garden.  I planted 6 pinks in two pots and a pineapple mint in another pot.  Then I watered the new plants.  Everything from the most recent shopping trip has now been planted.  \o/  As it is now dark, I am done for the night.

I still have other yard stuff to do later.  I have 3 bags of topsoil to fill the hollow near the patio.  I also have a few bulbs and packets of seeds to plant somewhere.  But all that is less urgent than live plants.

This poem came out of the January 8, 2019 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by discussions with [personal profile] dialecticdreamer. It also fills the "masks" square in my 9-30-18 card for the Fall Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Mercedes thread of the Polychrome Heroics series, following "When Opportunity Meets with Planning." Read that first or this won't make much sense.

Warning: This poem features intense and controversial topics. Highlight to read the warnings, some of which are spoilers. It includes consensual impersonation, a bank robbery, a domestic abuse victim, extreme malfeasance from the bank including the endangerment of said victim, the bank manager is an obnoxious dick, random customers choosing NOT to interfere with the bank robbery, soaking someone with a watergun, threatening to use superpowers for minor genital injury, psychedelic use of superpowers, the banks' only public restroom does not meet ADA standards, and also has a camera, vandalism via superpowers, the vault has WAY more money than it should, hiding out in an underground bunker, cramming calories, faceplanting anyway, and other challenges. There are no casualties in the bank job. If these are touchy topics for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward.
