ysabetwordsmith: (Schrodinger's Heroes)
This poem came out of the June 6, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by prompts from [personal profile] dialecticdreamer and [personal profile] readera. It also fills the "handicapped heroes" square in my 3-1-17 card for the Disability Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by [personal profile] janetmiles and Shirley Barrette.  It belongs to the shared world project Schrodinger's Heroes.

Warning: This poem deals with disability. Some characters have a healthier view of it than others, and not everyone agrees on what language is acceptable. Please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward.

Based on recent donations, "To Know After Absence" is now complete.  See what else Shiv finds to decorate his apartment above Blues Moon.

We went up to visit my parents today.

I found a black t-shirt with copper lettering that says "Breathe."  Always good advice!

I was thrilled to find a square-fold insulated shopping bag that zips around the top.  We used to have one but eventually it fell apart.  Since then I could only find flat ones, and one very small square-fold.  Yay, new bag!

We tried feijoa fruit.  It has a very strong tropical aroma with musky and floral notes.  The flavor is tangy but with many complex undertones that don't really blend together.  Texture is soft and a little gritty, similar to pear, although it has a complex seed compartment like a cucumber.  It was interesting to try, although I think I'd like it better blended with other fruits in a smoothie or ice cream.  It just seems made to marry with everything.  :D  Fandom bicycle fruit!  Everyone gets a ride!

This poem was written outside the regular prompt calls, inspired by the "shapeshifters" square in my 1-1-17 card for the Dark Fantasy Bingo fest. It has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Officer Pink thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

Warning: This poem contains some intense topics. Highlight to read the warnings, some of which are spoilers. Nebuly follows Turq's trail and finds Ansel, then Turq finds them. ALL THE FEELS! It's about unexpected meetings, depression, searching for lost friends, divergent senses, self-consciousness, protective behavior, emotional breakdown, regressive behavior, parentification, past mad science torture, a raging case of survival guilt with self-blame, past thoughts of death, past adverse drug reaction, a really terrible end to helpful therapy, and the poor therapist still doesn't even know that Nebuly is alive, difficulty asking for help, backstopping, out of spoons error, desperate clinginess, and other challenges. Despite the cathartic spewing of emotions everywhere, the overall effect is positive and leaves everyone headed into better space. Please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward. Skipping this one would leave a big gap, as it has major plot import.
