This week began with a poem from my book Mystery Plays, “Side of Life”. On Tuesday, Phillip got a break, not without strings attached, when his scheme to impress Gamotte suffered for its ambition, in Sequence of Events. Wednesday, “Sum of”, the latest new poem; Thursday, Catastrophe, with another unhappy member of the white faction. On Friday, the eleventh Tattersby, “Awful Rivalry”, Roscoe Bevington’s ghostly view of revenge at its ultimate. As a bonus this week, an essay, “To Whom Do You Refer”, continuing the With Malice Towards None series, and discussing how we rebuild a broken thing — our society’s trust and general goodness. Saturday, the latest episode of Celebrated, in which Tom finds secrets don’t keep on the internet.
Images on my posts usually have a link to related information (click first image), sometimes serious, sometimes whimsical, sometimes in answer to a direct reference. Since people can be leery about links, I include them here: what they are, what sites they point to.
