There are still verses left in the linkback poem "Learning to See."  Linking to this page will reveal new verses of that.

"The Big Crunch"
A DW prompt about final endings piqued my interest. What do you do when your story is done, but the publisher wants MORE? "The Big Crunch" is written in free verse.

"A Little Spark of Which"
From a DW prompt I got the free-verse poem "A Little Spark of Which." Reality unmakes and makes itself, and it is beautiful.

"Los Despiertos"
A little oblique, but this inspired the free-verse poem "Los Despiertos." There's a strange incursion in Waxahachie, Alex wants nothing to do with zombies, Kay insists they aren't zombies, and Chris' cousins get into trouble again.

Strange sightings always resulted
in calls to the Tef, but this time
something was different.

There were strangers exploring
Waxahachie, people with
pale skin and silver-bright eyes,
and a couple of reports said
that if anyone picked a fight
with them, they tended to bite.

"The Omnicidal Maniac's Guide to the Afterlife"
Your evil genius prompt inspired the free-verse poem "The Omnicidal Maniac's Guide to the Afterlife." Except that Horace is really more of a not-very-good idiot. He destroys the world out of sheer boredom, and then has to face the consequences.
68 lines, Buy It Now = $34

Horace didn't set out
to become and omnicidal maniac,
but the boredom drove him crazy
and he began inventing things

just because he could,
without stopping to think
whether he should.

"Spider Granddaughter"
A DW prompt inspired the free-verse poem "Spider Granddaughter." What happens with the older powers ignore a young goddess? Nothing good.
