Poetry in Microfunding:

There are two open epics at present.

"A Celebration and a Consolation" belongs to Polychrome Heroics. Keira's father dumps her mother on Yule.

"The Best Understanding of Their Differences" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Calliope and has 3 new verses. Calliope and Vagary consider the aftermath of the bubble fight.

The weather has been cloudy often and clear occasionally. Today it's mostly cloudy. Some of the recent snow has stuck around. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a large flock of sparrows, a flock of cardinals, a flock of mourning doves, several dark-eyed juncos, a downy woodpecker, a squirrel, and a rabbit.


The Grunge (GR#63) and Other Apocalyptic Pressures

These notes relate to the series The Daughters of the Apocalypse and its introductory poem "Laundry, Liturgy, and Women's Work."

WARNING: This whole section of notes is graphic and horrifying due to weapons of mass destruction and extreme population loss. Please consider your tastes and headspace before deciding whether this is something you want to read.
