Thoughts

>>When I read the sequel, I was thinking "I am sure I have read the other poem about the clerk" but since it was unpublished I didn't want to brag.<<

Yeah, I forgot about the sequencing of poems in this subplot, because the original prompt was specific but had come from someone who'd gotten a backchannel copy. I won't rule that out for future reference, but I'll try to be more careful about accounting for it in poem sales.

>>I am glad both are out.<<

Me too!

>> I also like the symmetry between these two pairs of sort-of-heroes...<<

I only noticed after the fact that each had a human and a nonhuman half in the pairing. They're all trying to navigate the moral whitewater. I think it's interesting that Taro is a clerk rather than a peasant -- he's quite sharp -- and Hicket is almost human. So some of the experiences will likely parallel while others diverge.
