Poem: "No Idea What's Going to Happen"

This poem is spillover from the June 2, 2020 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by prompts from [personal profile] bairnsidhe and [personal profile] wyld_dandelyon. It also fills the "Improvise" square in my 6-1-20 card for the Cottoncandy Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by a pool with [personal profile] ng_moonmoth, [personal profile] fuzzyred, [personal profile] technoshaman, and je_reviens. It belongs to the Rutledge thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.  It follows "Vulnerable and Bound," so read that first.

The half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics went wild.  \o/  Thanks to a donation from [personal profile] ng_moonmoth, it cleared the $1000 stretch goal, so there's another Rutledge poem to post plus the bonus poem.  :D  Many thanks to everyone who participated.


Poetry in Microfunding:

There is one open epic at present.

"Thinner in Some Places" is now complete.  After a tanker runs into Cthulhu, people take care of her.

"The Best Understanding of Their Differences" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Calliope and has 17 new verses. Calliope and Vagary start on couple exercises.

"Protect the Forests" is now complete. Kenzie explores the use of a travois.


The weather has been mild here.  Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a flock of mourning doves, a flock of sparrows, a flock of house finches, several cardinals, a pair of goldfinches, a Bewick's wren, and a squirrel. Currently blooming: comfrey, pinks, violas, alyssum, petunia, yellow coneflowers, purple coneflowers, cup plant, morning glory, hosta, black-eyed Susan, wild sunflowers, pink sedum, thistle, sunchokes, purple aster.
