This poem is spillover from the July 3, 2018 Poetry Fishbowl.  It was inspired by a prompt from DW user Dialecticdreamer.  It also fills the "snuggling" square in my 7-1-18 card for the Winterfest in July Bingo fest, and the "loss of voice / forced silence" square in my 6-23-18 card for the Hurt / Comfort Bingo fest. This poem belongs to the Marionettes and Mercedes threads of the Polychrome Heroics series.  It directly follows "The Compass that Guides Us," so read that first or this won't make much sense.

This microfunded poem is being posted one verse at a time, as donations come in to cover them.  The rate is $0.25/line, so $5 will reveal 20 new lines, and so forth. There is a permanent donation button on my profile page, or you can contact me for other arrangements. You can also ask me about the number of lines per verse, if you want to fund a certain number of verses.
So far sponsors include: pool with DW user Fuzzyred

823 lines, Buy It Now = $103
Amount donated = $30
Verses posted = 35 of 255 

Amount remaining to fund fully = $73
Amount needed to fund next verse = $1
Amount needed to fund the verse after that = $1

This poem was written outside the regular prompt calls, inspired by conversation with [personal profile] kyleri. It also fills the "Blood" square in my 10-1-19 card for the Fall Festival Bingo. It has been sponsored by a pool with [personal profile] fuzzyred. This poem belongs to the Broken Angels thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.  It falls between "One of the Necessities of Life" and "A Broad Health and Moral Education."

Warning: This poem contains intense and controversial topics. Highlight to read the warnings, some of which may be spoilers. It features the aftermath of a beating, reference to gaybashing, a gay prostitute (who likes his job), homophobia, negotiation about gang membership, statement of intent to use superpowers against gaybashers, messy medical details, cross-orientation male-male cuddling for comfort, insecurity, queer romance fiction, and other angst. If these are sensitive issues for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward.
