Poetry in Microfunding:
"Often Buried Deep" belongs to the series An Army of One. It follows Astin on the trader's loop. "Settled" is the third piece of the Polychrome Heroics triptych about the fight at SPOON, taking place the next morning as Aidan and Hannah help Danso cope with what happened.

It has snowed thoroughly here. Everything is still under a blanket of white, very sparkly in the sun now. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: sparrows, male and female cardinals, lots of mourning doves, and just this morning a squirrel hanging upside-down on the hopper. Also I've seen a rabbit scrounging for dropped seeds underneath. The wildlife comes out more when their other food is covered.
