    Really good - seriously creepy. I’m not sure I want to go down to the basement anymore...

    Hey, It's Me!

    Like the new haircut!

    Poem 1

    Taken together, these meditations on laughter and sound and silence left me needing quiet time to think and digest. So many phrases captured my mind; skittering tinkle, God’s laughter, expressions manipulated into fortress walls. Well done.
  4. Back home after a lovely weekend. Went to a used book sale, and came home with bags full. Now to find shelf space for them!

      How will you find time to read them all?  ;)

      I love the smell of used book sales any time of day. Smells like... victory!

  5. I am taking a weekend trip away with friends. Maybe a museum or a winery tour?

      I second Valkyries wine suggestion.

    3. Headstall


      Yup. Wine gets my vote. :)  Have a great weekend, Parker. :hug:

    Chapter 28

    Wars teach men things like brevity. There’s poetry in that someplace... thanks again.

    Chapter 26

    Push ahead to reach the present future. This is awesome. It’s almost metaphysically bizarre. Love it. Thank you.

    Waiting for Business

    You paint a vibrant picture very few actually see; the boredom and grey of Calvin’s existence is unexpected. What would have to occur to change his path?
  9. @AC Benus Thank you so much for sharing this one. You’re right that it sounds musical, and needs to be recited aloud.
  10. There was actual snow on the ground this afternoon. The north sides of all the trees showed it, too, making them look skeletal.

      I heard a rumour snow is supposed to show up my way this weekend. I'm hoping it's just a rumour...

    2. Mikiesboy


      a rumour is preferred!!

      I had to scrape snow/ice off the car this morning.  I think we've skipped fall this year.  :(

    Come Over

    A not so innocent tale of a more innocent age. Beautifully written, with just the right kind of tone and inflection.
  12. And let me add to the other voices praising this awesome poem. It pulls the heart and heightens every sense, striving to hear, scent and touch along with you, that we may share in recollection.

    Chapter 33: An Abject Low

    Kohl once merely jaded and jealous, is now bereft of love and self respect. And he is truly to blame this time. He cannot love what Gordon sees, nor see what Gordon loves in him. His prayer to Priapus (beautifully done) could be the desperate psalm of many men. We can hope Gordon will return, it hardly looks possible. The hurt is so very great.

    Questions, Questions Questions

    What sort of fight?

    Chapter 10

    Ship Ahoy. Arad is curious, a natural survival trait for a street slug. Information is often valuable. But he shows - barely - how to rein in that curiosity when it means danger. Without the protection of Torrins, how much danger is Arad in? What does that hail portend? Yet again, I am left wondering and wanting more.

    Over in Sixty Seconds or So

    No, not straight, but hurting and unhealed. Not that Kenny knew any of this, how could he? But he might have been more compassionate; less quick to rush to judgement.

    Last Post Wins #46

    I think it far beyond routine to cover shiny in poutine; far better keep it in regard to leave the shiny crown with Bard. Mine.

    The Phrase

    I grieve you suffered such pain. Your poetry conveys power in your hurt.

    Definitely quirky, but perfect for the season. Thank you for this story.

    The Treasure of Escanaba

    So Red regains his true being as Boyd, and regains it alone. So much remains untold, and of course I want to hear it... soon please?

    Our House

    This story is a wonderful Halloween hug, possibly wrapped in a pumpkin-shade of blanket. Beautiful!

    Chapter Four

    The distance between them closes further still. But what is Sebastian up to? Trying to flush Noah out into the open? Trying to hit on him? Or just being friendly enough to make other people think? Great chapter.

    A submissive's journey ... Perception

    As is so very often true, your thoughts illuminate and make me think. Thank you for posting them.

    College Weeks 7 & 8

    Awesome news, Drew! Integration by parts is one of my favorites! I sometimes teach my students to use four-color pens to do them, which can help. You are doing some great stuff - trig integrals, partial fractions... (does small fist pump here). Hugs and high hopes.

    Chapter Three

    I am enjoying this. They are slowly admitting friendship to form, and mutual regard to bond them closer. This could be lots of fun.
