Read about easterns as a genre
The original idea for easterns came through Polychrome Heroics
, since Terramagne has them as television shows and so forth. Walking the Beat
connects with lesbianism and Boston marriage. Mostly it's going to be exciting new territory, though.
I have a linkback poem, "Gökotta"
(7 verses, Hart's Farm).
If you're interested, mark the date on your calendar, and please hold actual prompts until the "Poetry Fishbowl Open" post next week. (If you're not available that day, or you live in a time zone that makes it hard to reach me, you can leave advance prompts. I am now
